This is me displaying my non-existent tambourine skills on stage. Sweetie Barbara Ingram on percussion and Evette Benton on vocals. John Ingram is facing the wall in the back of the photo. This is 1988. Thanks for the memories!

Ray Parker's 18th birthday party -- he was playing in Stevie's band and when I learned it was his birthday, friends and I quickly put together an impromptu party for him.

By the way I love those INGRAM family records...
From the Ingram Kingdom on Excello, to That's All, and the two others they did, this was great music...

Linda Di: For us relative newcomers what do you do in the business called show? (Please pardon my ignorance.)

Ray Parker started his professional career as a session guitarist while he was a teenager, playing on sessions for Invictus/Hot Wax. He joined Stevie Wonder's Wonderlove band when he was seventeen. By 1973, Ray relocated from Detroit to LA and became a member of Barry White's Love Unlimited Orchestra.
His guitar work can be heard on the records such as TALKING BOOK and INNERVISIONS by Stevie Wonder, LOVE'S THEME by the Love Unlimited Orchestra, PIECES OF DREAMS by Stanley Turrentine as well as several releases on Invictus/Hot Wax.

There is so much to see and learn from y'all! Anyone in the forum who shares their pictures with us all has got bonafide treasures to have and to hold always. Please pardon my ignorance also, who is Linda Di?

Nosey and Bigdaddy: I'm not in show business -- I'm just a fan. Probably more like a "super fan." Music has always been a very important part of my life, like everybody else here. And I've always admired the music makers a great deal and have been blessed to have met my favorite artists. I've spent some time backstage, helping out in some stressful moments -- zipping up gowns, sewing on buttons, running errands, even babysitting a few little ones here and there! In my next life, I'll probably be some type of roadie.

Hey Lindi Di, great photos dear, simply great! I'm so jealous of you guys that were actually there.
|By Linda Di. (220.127.116.11) on Tuesday, April 06, 2004 - 11:42 pm:|
It's been fun, but not without alot of work and patience. That's why I'm out of the fan business these days -- too old!! LOL
