One listener, enthralled by Mary Lou Peterman's crooning, wrote a fan letter to the band, requesting "Your vocalist MUST sing 'Skylark' at each dance --- it gives me chills every time." We try to oblige at occasional concerts as well as dances.

Mary Lou Peterman sings "Skylark" while Glen Newton, on the vibraphone, and the Roseville Big Band play backgrounds. Mary Lou sang "Skylark" with the Roseville Big Band at Edinborough Park in Edina on March 23, 1993.
