The Bossmen - 1994 Reunion

Lanny's Famous Flaming Trumpet

A famous part of the Bossmen concerts was always Lanny playing his flaming trumpet.

This 1994 Performance

did not disappoint Bossmen fans as he belts out one of their signature concert songs. Lanny's trumpet can also be heard in the Bossmen single, "Wait And See from the summer of 1966.

(To my knowledge this 1994 concert was the last one played by all of the remaining Bossmen, Warren Keith their keyboard player and vocalist is deceased.)
