Was introduced to Dan in 1967 and formed a band we named “The Carolina Gentlemen “. Consisted of Dan Orta, Jack Parker D-2017, Jim Carrig D-2017, John LindlerD-2020, and myself Larry Rainwater on drums/ will be 81 on 17th. We all became like brothers and I though the world of Dan. Reconnected with Dan and Elizabeth in 2006 only to call it guitar after members became sick. Saw Dan at John’s funeral 2020 sat and talked. I will miss Dan along with all others, Dan was special and loved his music.
