The KSO often embarks on musical archeological digs to find interesting and nostalgic music. The decision to recreate Spike Jones’ musical mayhem and classical parodies of the ’40s and ’50s took Mr. Cassidy to Beverly Hills to meet Spike Jones Jr.

The result of that meeting, combined with finding percussionist / entertainer Carl Mack, and KSO arranger Terry LaBolt’s reconstructing parts from original music and rebuilding others, led to this impromptu performance at the Madison Theatre in Covington, KY.
