A New CD from Cartoon
The Arts Festival is next week, and in keeping with tradition, it’ll include a concert by Cartoon on Friday night (July 9) in Schwab Auditorium. This year, Cartoon will have a new CD ready for the concert—not bad for a bunch of guys who now are scattered throughout the East Coast, have jobs that mostly have nothing to do with music, and play together only once in a great while.
This past May, Glenn Kidder ’73, Kevin Dremel ’81, Randy Hughes ’79, and Jon Rounds ’87, ’94g got together in an old stone chapel in Keene, N.H.—Kevin’s hometown—to record the new CD. The recording is called The Chapel Sessions and I’m sure they’ll have copies available at their Arts Fest performance. You also can order it by going to the band’s website.
Now, who remembers hearing Cartoon perform at Rego’s in Heritage Oaks, or at the Hippo Room in the Deli back in the 1980s? You get extra-credit bonus points if you know what the group’s name was before they changed it to Cartoon.
