Unique, original instrumenta-
tion of sweet and danceable music
blending into the informal atmos-
phere of the summer Casbah will
be provided by campus band-
leader Art Starr and his five

Michigan crowd," with an accent
on personal requests, will attempt
to give the Casbah the appro-
priate informality of a party
dance. By combining the popular
"Tinker tempo" with Starr Sex-
tet arrangement the new Casbah
maestro hopes to provide summer
session students with a pleasant
innovation in dance band style.
Complementing the sextet will
be WJR songstress Renie Peters,
