Utah Watkins

The Kicks Band is saddened to learn of the passing of our former saxophonist Utah Watkins.  Utah held down the baritone sax chair for a few years and also occasionally filled in on tenor.  He also was a regular in the KC Metro Big Band and the Friday Morning Band.  The Kansas City band community will miss him, both musically and personally.
