Over on AECM, the e-mail listserv for accounting professors, we mostly discuss accounting issues. It’s all very serious. Some of the discussions are way over my head, and I’m a pretty good professor. But every once in a while some crazy prof wants to talk about something unrelated to accounting. To warn the 700+ members that they might not want to read it, the subject line starts with the words: Off Topic.
This is an “Off Topic” edition of The Summa. Here are three performances of the St. Lukes Bottle Band, from the St. Lukes Lutheran Church of Park Ridge, Illinois.
This description is from their web page:
Founded in 1979 by Professor Paul Phillips, over the past few years the St. Luke’s Bottle Band has been featured on National Public Radio, the NBC Nightly News, Wild Chicago and the Jenny Jones Show. The band has traveled to Atlanta Georgia to perform for the American Lutheran Church Musicians Conference, as well as Door County, Wisconsin, to present a concert at the Fish Creek Auditorium. The Bottle Band has appeared on An American Moment with James Earl Jones and twice on the Late Show with David Letterman.
The first performance is their version of the Peacherine Rag by Scott Joplin:
Next, the Braham’s Lullaby:
Finally, their December 31, 1998 performance on the David Letterman show.
These folks do much more with a bottle than any accountant.
