Silver Laughter – The Early Years!

SILVER LAUGHTER SUITS DEMO - John, Denny, Steve, Jon and Kim

SILVER LAUGHTER SUITS DEMO – John, Denny, Steve, Jon and Kim

I want to send out a huge thank you to Steve Elliott, one of the original Silver Laughter band members. We finally figured out how to get the photos to me using Dropbox. After seeing how big some of the scans are, I expect it was being rejected from my mail service because of  the size of its attachment… over 18 MB.

Some of the photos were ones I have already posted which I grabbed from Steve’s Facebook page. But others I have never seen before. So starting today, I will rotate what he sent me into the (almost) daily posts I am doing. Occasionally I will re-post some because the descriptions Steve put on them are funny and informative.

This first one is the guys in suits which Steve labeled “Demo”. They are outside at the Ludtke pony farm (I think). From left to right are John Carstensen (guitar), Denny Walton (guitar and harmonica), Steve Elliott (bass – possibly before taking up the steel guitar), Jon Ludtke (guitar) and Kim Ludtke (drums).
