Hal Tennyson?[edit]

Was there a member by the name of Hal Tennyson? I know that there was a member named Hal Dickinson, but I read on Solid! that there was a member named Hal Tennyson! Can anyone explain!? -- Tim, 3 March, 2007

Hal Tennyson was a saxophone player in the early days of the Glenn Miller band. Hal Dickinson was indeed a founding member of the original Modernaires. --Alan Glasscock 2009 —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:54, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

 I don't about Hal Tennyson but I would like to comment on Ray Eberlee.  Where is he in the bio information?  Also, I've always admired the Modernaires and wanted to comemmorate the group by adapting their name for my group which I called the Southwest Moderaires in which I attempted to explore the rehlm or western/bluegrass music into the same context as the original group did with swing.  Paula Kelly found us on gigmaster and immediately emailed me and asked me very politely to cease and disist which I totally understood.  Now I wasn't aware that the Moderaires were still in existance let alone, still performing.  Paula explained to me that the tradition of the Modernaires was intended to be a generational progression passed down and kept alive for future generations to appreciate.  So I began to study the story of the Moderaires and learned how the groups approach to singing has influenced the entire American pop culture.  I now have renamed my group with Paula's descreet and suggestive comentary "Blazintrails" which suggests that something new can still emerge from their collective and distingtive musical approach to American song.  —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:18, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
