I was going through the photos on my computer and found this one. I probably saved it from here on the Forum, but can't remember when, or who all is in it. I can ID Jerry Byrd & Buddy Emmons, but don't know who the others are.

I was thinking the tall guy, 4th from the left (next to Jerry Byrd) might be Leon McAuliffe, but I'm not sure.

I would guess the back row from the right, Jimmy Bryant, Bob White, Don Helm, Buddy, and Speedy West.

Great photo! Never seen a photo of Bob Foster. It's Don Warden.

Thanks for the info & new photo, Robert. It's actually 2 different shots, as in the first pic, Jerry Byrd's LEFT hand is on top, and in Robert's photo, Jerry's RIGHT hand is on top. Also, Buddy Emmons' eyes are closed in the first pic.

Might the young lady "BLANCH" be Blanch EMERSON of the 1950's band of King/Capital Recording Artist Ann Jones?

Ray Montee ID'd the unidentified female in the Fender booth at the 1957 DJ Convention in Nashville as Blanche Emerson - steel player for Ann Jones and her Western Sweethearts. (Thanks Ray - for a great example of the SGF's collective memory at work)





Lot's of Ann Jones on You Tube with Blanche's fine steel playing. Blanche Emerson was not out of place in the DJ Convention photo.
