D J Kennedy

Post by Posaunus »

Apparently DJ Kennedy has not made the transition from the Trombone Forum to TromboneChat.

I miss his (sometimes pithy, usually interesting) comments, and his knowledge of many things trombone.

I have a friend who would like to contact DJ about a trombone purchase. All I know is that he lives in Chester, Illinois. Does anyone know how to reach him?

I looked on facebook and searched the members. Cannot find him.
I would like to send his contact info to a friend that needs a horn for his son.
Any one got info?

I'm not a Facebook user, but I received this information about DJ:
http://facebook.com/donald.j.kennedy2

No phone number, though.
Hope it's helpful.

Try his email at [email protected] Facebook messenger is probably quicker.

I recently bought an Elkhart 88h from him and had it shipped to Australia. Great to deal with as usual!

I had my first experience on May this year. Very efficient (got my horn in 6 days), great horn (King 3B #1963, vintage for a first horn but I prefered to be cautious) and I do not regret. I still think about a second one, satin soulard finish probably, 3B for sure!!!!!!!!!!!! All my deal through Facebook: simple, efficient, convenient, ...

I emailed and called a few times.

Seems he is of the new breed that does not return calls.

Happy to hear DJ is still around.

Got 3 horns from him over the years, and every witty description about the horn was dead on.

I might grab a 2B from him soon :)

What's the best way to contact DJ? I have lost my e-mail and phone contact list. :(

Thanks!

Called D J today, and had a pleasant, interesting conversation.

Surprised to learn that he has not yet participated in TromboneChat. [It's been almost a year, D J!] I encouraged him to sign up - others who know him should do the same. I miss his "pithy" commentary!

I hadn't seen him on FB for some time and then fairly recently saw a couple of posts, so one should be able to find him there. Happy to see he's still chugging along.

It was a great pleasure to talk with DJ. He's knowledgeable, articulate, and extremely helpful about trombone issues. I wish he'd get active on TromboneChat so we could all enjoy his comments. ;)

He has. He is a registered member and posted a few times, but only between April and June last year, it seems: https://www.trombonechat.com/search.php ... 3&sr=posts
