    *Previous Band Members of the Month*
    Bob Nolting

    I started playing clarinet when I was a freshman in High School.  I wanted to be in the Band and I asked Bob Lenox what he needed.  That’s when I started to take lessons.  By the time I was a junior I was also playing the saxophone and I started my own Dance Band, The Bob Nolting Orchestra.  It was an instant success.

    The Band lasted for about three years or until I started college.  I continued to play, but was drafted into the army, and attended the Band School at Fort Dix and later assigned to The 359 Army Band at Fort Eustice, Virginia.  After the Army I went back to finish college at The University of Bridgeport.  Joined the Jack Still Band at the Pleasure Beach Ballroom and worked with my own quintet.

    After I got married and started to have children I stopped playing for the next 35 years.  In 2000 I was recuperating from triple by-pass surgery and one day I noticed my Saxophone over in the corner of the den.  I took it out and played, but “Boy was I rusty,” so I started to practice between 4 and 5 hours a day.  After that I joined the Milford Concert Band and the Stratford Community Concert Band.  In addition, I am a member of the Paul King Big Band, the Wayne Hiller Octet and the American Festival Orchestra. 

    I am presently Secretary-Treasurer of Local 52-626 American Federation of Musicians Union.
