Portable Instrument

My friends know that I have a long history as a fan of Mannheim Steamroller. (See “Hey, Chip! You’re Welcome” )

So, as the band comes to Hancher for two shows on Nov. 19, it was a huge honor to talk to Roxanne Layton, a member and friend of founder Chip Davis since the 90s. If I would have had more time, we definitely would have talked more about her attending high school with the Marsalises and Terence Blanchard, not to mention sailing around the world with her dad. But we kept it between the lines, and I learned some things about Mannheim Steamroller that even I didn’t know!

It was a delight to talk to Roxanne about one of my favorite groups, and I hope our paths cross again soon.
