Members of the band, from left, were Joe Levinson, bass; Dick Oakley, trumpet (who replaced Bobby Lewis, the original trumpet player); Chuck Hedges, clarinet; Wayne “Happy” Gormley, drums; Dave Remington, trombone; Mel Grant, piano. The Dixieland Six played for many occasions in and around Rockford.
