Remember Kurt Seigert "Strings in Stereo?

For this of us who grew up by the Executive Inn, it seemed liked Kurt Seigert's name was on the Executive Inn sign forever. "Strings in Stereo" was the headliner name. Kurt Siegert has a website and I've enclosed his info below.

The Kurt Siegert Strings, was a popular combo and performed at the Executive Inn almost daily for close to 30 years. More pictures.

Kurt & Barbara organized the string group, consisting of
four violins, Kurt, Barbara and Jesus & Carmen Getan
with Tom Conlin at the piano and Bert Pierson, Bass
(see photo below)

The group opened the Executive Inn in Louisville in 1963
and except for an eight months engagement 1964/65 at
the Executive Inn in Dallas, performed daily in the
Empire Room until 1992

At one time the orchestra was augmented to six violins
but later changed to three violins and a guitar was added

Our repertoire: From Classics to Jazz
