Clark directs the Surprise Pops Band, the West Valley Wind Ensemble, and plays with the Sun City Stomperz Dixieland Band. Ellie Chaffee, vocals, is a retired teacher and librarian who now sings with a number of local ensembles, including a folk group, a Beatles tribute band, and the dance band BackBeat.
