Miss Kravitz was happy to spend her days teaching music to the children at General John G. Pershing Elementary School. At night she played jazz and blues in the smoky, little roadhouse at the edge of town. The roadhouse was out on Highway 51 just about a mile south of Clearwater Road.
People from all over the county came out on Saturday night for the fish fry and a few cold beers. Miss Kravitz – Nancy when she was not in the classroom – would play back up for whatever guitar slinger wandered in. Nancy’s Uncle Diz played the bass and they would often play well into the night and long about into the morning. Nancy would surrender the piano by sunrise. She was always a sweaty mess, but her batteries got recharged and the creative juices flowed and she was ready to face the kids again come Monday morning
