Welcome to Nobodybutcurtis.com

If you’re wondering why I decided to call my website “NOBODY BUT CURTIS,”  it’s as a tribute to my paternal grandfather.  During the 1930s Grampa was the leader of the exquisitely named, Grand Rapids, Michigan, big band “Herman E. Curtis and the Dusky Devastators of the Depression!!!!!!”

     A name that deserves all six of those exclamation points.
