Roseville Big Band performers for this concert:

Saxes: Nancy Veerkamp (alto), Bill Frank (alto), Glen Peterson (tenor), Dan Desmonds (tenor), and Bill Pearson (baritone)
Trumpets and Flugelhorns: Mark Lee, Jeff Olsen, Dan Theobald, and Bob Nielsen
Trombones: Greg Albing, George Henly, Rich Eyman, Keith Miner (bass trombone)
Rhythm: Ann Booth (piano), Mike Wobig (bass), Karen Dunn / Keith Miner / Glen Newton (congas), and Glen Newton (vibraphone)
Vocalists: Karen Dunn, Glen Newton, Bob Nielsen, and Keith Miner

Because there was no drummer, Glen, Karen, and Keith took turns providing some rhythm on the congas. Except when singing, Karen played congasbefore the intermission. Keith played them on a number of songs after the intermission. When Keith played congas, Glen covered the bass trombone parts. On Tall Cotton and Satin Doll, Glen started on congas, then Karen took over when Glen switched to trumpet or vibes. In recognition of the situation, Karen changed the line "If it sounds like Dorsey on the trombone" in Dance to the Big Band Swing to "If it sounds like Tito on the congas," a reference to legendary Latin percussionist Tito Puente.
