“Cactus Jack”

Originally a duo, “Bartholemew and Douglas” with Ted Douglas on lead guitar and Jim Bartholemew on vocals and rhythm, the two added Mike Kieffer on bass and Kirby Bivans on drums and became Cactus Jack. Under the management of Carolyn Bowman, who also managed Rokko and the Hat, the band worked steadily, most notably at Durty Nellies in Palatine and Durty Dicks on the Northwest side of Chicago.
