Del Casher in New York Times
Hi! This is my first blog so forgive me for any shortcomings. The purpose of this blog is to share information about the Three Suns.
The Three Suns were formed in 1939 by brothers Al Nevins (guitar) and Morty Nevins (accordion) and their cousin Artie Dunn (vocals and organ). By the mid to late 50's, Al and Morty stopped touring but kept recording and Artie Dunn toured with other guitar and accordion players.
Del Casher was one of the traveling members of The Three Suns around 1958-1959. Along with accordionist Joe Vento and original member Artie Dunn, Del was a member of The Three Suns on their very successful tour of Japan in 1959 and recorded with Dunn and Vento as The Three Suns on the album "The Three Suns In Japan" which was made exclusively for the Japanese market. Del went on to have a fine career as a guitarist on records, TV and movies and even was involved in the invention of the wah-wah pedal.
Here is an article about Del Casher which appeared in Sunday's New York Times about his involvement with the invention of the wah-wah pedal.
