It's about twenty years since Sergeant Pepperoni moved away from Boston. Does anyone know where he ended up?

Sergeant Pepperoni (Paul Cole) was a one-man band, and he could play more instruments at one time (17) than anyone else in the world. He played for the brothers who edited the Guinness Book of World Records once. They confirmed his world record, and were impressed that he was able to get music from all of the instruments, not just noise, but they didn't put his category into their book.

Paul also used to play pipe and tabor for the Black Joker Morris Men.

Has anyone seen him, anytime in the last twenty years?

Jacob

I'll refresh this in the hope that some who just checks Mudcat on the weekends has seen Paul.

For that matter, does anyone know of any other one-man bands with folk connections?

Jacob

I was searching for a picture of my dad playing as Sergent Peperoni or his One Man Fife and Drum Corp, when I found this old post. My father passed away in 2000.

So sad to hear that Paul Cole has passed on. He was a regular at my coffeehouse in Harvard Square in the 70's. I don't think I have any photos, but I probably have some recordings. Of course, there's the clip of Paul in the opening credits of the old TV show Banacek.

Indeed. I took this in March of 1977 with my Leica M4. I also have other views, including from the back, showing his lettered "Sgt. P." drum, if there's any interest..

Mr. Cole was my grade school music teacher...Loved this man! In 1982 my older sister was getting married, and my mother decided that Sgt Pepperoni would be the best wedding suprise for the bride & groom. I was only 10 at the time, but I will never forget the look on my sisters face when he walked in to the reception. The old german relatives were in heaven! God bless Mr. Cole and all of the happiness he provided throughout the years.

I remember a guy named Sargent Pepperoni performing at six flags St. Louis back in the early eighties. I don't know if this is the same guy but his setup looked pretty much the same as I recall
