THE LEVEE DIXIELAND SEVEN - "WEEKENDS
AT THE LEVEE"
The first of the two albums by the Levee Dixieland Seven featured Tommy Loy (trumpet),
Tam Mott (trombone), Peyton Park (clarinet), Ed Bernet (banjo), Dick Bernet (piano), Benny Bennett (bass) and Roger Davidson
(drums). On the second LP, Lloyd Hebert was playing trombone, Freddie Crane had taken over on piano, Dude Kahn was the new

Texas, did a superb job in making the music sound even better than it did on the original LP's.
