Our manager, Art “Smart” was also a musician before he was our manager. His band, Sunday Social, was inducted into the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.

The IRMMA website gave this profile: “…The early version of the band was made up of Bob Parker (keyboards), Art Stenstrom (bass), Mike Galvin (guitar), and Dave Martin (drums). This group found jobs at high schools, junior high schools and weddings, and existed mostly as a young basement band. Art Stenstrom and Bob Parker would remain part of the band until May of 1974…”
