columnist Dave Barry, who has thought up more names for
rock bands than anyone on the planet,
do better than Lethal Combination, the resident faculty band of Moravian
actually is a blues band. The musicians are Peter von
Allmen, associate professor of economics and business,
Fred Schultheis, associate professor
of mathematics, rhythm guitar; Tom Mondschein, senior user support analyst,
CIT, bass guitar and harmonica; Kelly Krieble ’86,
assistant professor of physics, drums; and Robert Brill,
associate professor of psychology, vocals.
The band made
its debut at a Friday get-together of faculty and staff
in the Doghouse and played at the rained-out College picnic in June.
Its current play list is heavy on Eric Clapton,
to the Highway,” “How Long?,” and “Driftin’.” It
also includes the Rolling Stones’ cover of “Spider
and the Fly” and The Band’s of “Further
On Up the Road.” Repertory also includes works by Blind
Faith, Santana, and Robert Johnson, as well as “Matchbox
Blues” and other lamentations.
The editor of InCommon,
who was a music critic for 22 years before moving to Academe,
is ready to swear that these were
all in the same key; but the play list and the ears of
Carol Traupman-Carr ’86, associate dean for academic
affairs, say otherwise.
Lethal Combination wants the campus
community to know that
it is available for weddings, bar mitzvahs, funerals,
and class reunions.
