Savoy Lindy Fans, Let me be the first to donate $50.00 for the Frankie Manning and his friends interviews at a 'National Savoy Lindy Convention'. It is a super important time in the history of 'America's Cultural Contribution to the World' the LINDY HOP. Let me add that the offer to answer questions, should extend to other Savoy 1930's DANCERS, MUSICIANS OR PROMOTERS, who can contribute their remembrances of that era. There may be a few musicians from the Chick Web era still around; lets invite them. Leonard Reed, the originator of the Shim Sham is still a healthy 93 with credentials on that era a mile long. Let it be a Convention of the 'Savoy Lindy Days'. There is the serious factor of the 'Question & Answer" format that has to be devised. Also, we have to keep in mind, 'If you ask the wrong questions, you do not get the right answers'. So questions should be submitted well in advance and those questions deemed acceptable, the authors get the privilege of asking their Question to whomever they choose. Finally, WHO sits on the BOARD OF ADVISORS deciding what questions are legitimately appropriate for the guests? This proposed idea is too serious and significant for the History of the Savoy Lindy to not do it properly presented with several pundits of the Savoy Lindy Hop Era! I vote for two giant entrepreneurs to help organize the 'Savoy Lindy Convention': Kevin Van Meter and Hilary Alexander; are there other suggestions?
