Mr. Andre L. Maclin, July 23, 1940 ~ January 24, 2022 (age 81)
Andre was an original member of the UCity Summer Band and in his 20+ years as a member he never missed a rehearsal or a concert. He was a talented and very dedicated member of the band. We have missed him since he moved away and now the band in heaven has a new drum set player - and a good one. Rest in peace dear friend. Andre L. Maclin

What All-Star Game? Life goes on for some St. Louisans
By Cordell Whitlock
KSDK -- Baseball did not stop the Clayton Board of Alderman from voting on a smoking ban Tuesday night while the All-Star Game was getting under way at Busch Stadium. Mayor Linda Goldstein says city government trumps athletics.
"I know it's hard to believe and my husband doesn't agree, but sometimes it does," Goldstein said.
It was obviously not a typical summer night Tuesday in St. Louis. Many parks and playgrounds were empty and some outdoor dining spots had thin crowds. But it was business as usual in the University City Loop where the Summer Band Concert Series went on as planned.
Lifelong baseball fan Mary Racen had a choice between baseball and music. Racen choose the latter.
"I don't know what it is but I have to hear this music when I can. It\'s wonderful," she said.
When the concert was over, Racen, as any true Cardinals fan would, rushed home to watch the game on television.
