Meet Court 'n' Disaster
So, it went like this….
One night, at a benefit show for Sonoma County Legal Aid, Jim Bertoli is performing solo, doing Buck Owens covers. Two trial lawyers are playing bass and guitar in another act at the same show. The piano player, also a trial lawyer, is performing in a duo on the same stage.
So the bass player says to the guitar player, “Jim needs a back-up band.” After Jim roped in a court clerk to play second guitar, a banker to play drums, a lawyer’s wife and a spa owner to sing backup… Court ‘n’ Disaster was born.
