David Slusser - saxophones, Sheldon Brown - saxophones, Chris Ackerman - drums Richard Saunders - double bass
Ohio expatriates David Slusser and the late Ralph Carney with Chris Ackerman created the band Rubber City to pay tribute to their rust belt beginnings in Akron Ohio. Slusser, Carney, and drummer Chris Ackerman all barely escaped Ohio without gross disfigurements from industrial accidents to make music on the West Coast. This version of Rubber city will pay tribute to the recently departed Ralph Carney featuring alto saxophonist Sheldon Brown and bassist Richard Saunders filling out the quartet.
