Jack Calhoun of "The Calhoun Twins" passed away Friday, The Calhoun Twins (Jack and Jerry) often appeared at the St Louis ISGC, usually with Lynn Owsley. They also had ties to Shot Jackson. Recently they have had several appearances on the Jimmy Sturr TV shows. The brothers own "Entertainment Coaches of America", custom tour bus company in Leesburg Fl (Willie Nelson and Jimmy Sturr's buses, among many, came from their tour bus company).

Looks Like its "Entertainment" Coaches of America now. I've been to their "Ranch" complex several times its about 30 miles due east of me in Leesburg, Fl where they are located.

I've been to several jams at their Hospitality House on the complex.
