2. New Board Members
The DMAA Board is pleased to welcome Carl Kaestle ’62, Tom Metzloff ’76, Mike Hrycelak ’97, and Elliot Watts ’09 to the fold. Some quick bios:

Carl Kaestle ’62 — Pitched the Duke’s Men of ‘60-‘61 (producing the Zounds LP, one of the best Doox recordings until the group’s breakout successes of the 1990s) and the Whiffenpoofs of ’62 before becoming an historian of education, most recently on the faculty of a lesser Ivy institution of higher learning in Providence, RI. Easily the Board member with the most pleasant speaking voice, Carl (whose last name is pronounced “kay’ sul” ) is nonetheless not the guy from “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me.”

Tom Metzloff ’76 — A former business manager (‘74-‘75), Tom was renowned during his undergraduate years for owning the largest car manufactured in the pre-SUV era, and for competing with Rick Brookhiser ’77 at being the Duke’s Man with highest IQ. Following graduation from the law school at a lesser Ivy institution in Cambridge, MA, he went on to clerk for Supreme Court Justice Byron “Whizzer” White before becoming forever a “Duke’s Man” by joining the faculty of the Duke University School of Law. He teaches, among other things, ethics and dispute resolution. The rest of the board is excited to offer him real life tests on those issues.

Mike Hrycelak ’97 — Perhaps the lowest bass voice in the history of the Duke’s Men, Michael gave up a promising career doing voice overs of steamboat whistles to become an anesthesiologist. A former Business Manager from ’95-’96, Mike was present during the heart of the seminal 90’s era that produced records such as Food, Mom, and 45. Mike had been on tour since graduation, but now he’s back on tour’s longest stop — New Haven — as a faculty member at the Yale School of Medicine.

Elliot Watts ’09 — Displaced Lindsay Elliott ’04 (sic) as the youngest member of the board. Business Manager of Da Doox of ‘07-‘08 and the undergraduate most involved in prodding the old guys to form the DMAA and run the 55th reunion. He was present during the recording of D.O.O.X. and the What a Trip / Smooth Ride double-album; apparently those were pretty good albums. Elliot is currently working for an education consulting firm in Boston and has the dubious long term ambition of becoming a lawyer. He’s padding his resume by going on a service trip in Liberia before enrolling next fall at an as-yet-undetermined law school. Having been born after the invention of the internet, Elliot is renowned for an inability to form complete

3. Regional Singing Dinners
The DMAA is happy to announce regional singing dinners in Chicago, Providence, and Washington DC in the upcoming months. More details in the next Istanbulletin.

Also: if you are interested in attending one of these or hosting one in your city, the board will happily help coordinate and subsidize the event.
