Description

Black and white photo of Jean Kittrell on piano performing with Old Guys Jazz Band members Deane Wiley (trombone), Warren Brown (clarinet), Cal Meyers (trumpet), and Jim Hansen (drums) aboard the Delta Queen paddle wheel river boat. The boat was en route to Hannibal, Missouri. A mural in art deco style is visible in the background decorating the stage area. Band members are wearing dark vests with light dress shirts and ties, and Jean is in a light colored fringe dress with a single strap, facing away from the camera. The logo on the bass drum is partially visible, reading "Delta Queen Gree---Mers" with a banjo player icon designed from shaped letters. Photo appears to be from the same performance as JMK_2017_7_1_0001, dated to the 1980s.
