About The Group

The Chore Boys were some of the busiest musicians on the National Barn Dance, providing backup for the artists from rehearsal until sign-off.

Back then, Jimmy was just a senior at Purdue, majoring in Forestry.

Augie's wife was Mary Jane Klein, one of the original DeZurik Sisters from Royallton, MN
