PLAY TO WIN
BIOGRAPHY: At age 20 Jeff Swan and female lead singer Jackie Bruckman traveled to Highwood Illinois from California to stay with Jackie’s grandmother. They formed the group De Je Vu and took their first single “Save Me” straight to 103.1 WVVX. At midnight the song was played on the air by Scott Loftus. The band would soon break up. Jeff Swan and Singer Jackie Bruckman went through the Illinois Entertainer classified ads and found drummer John Babila and bassist Jim Patterson. Things were going well until Jackie decided to go back to school in California. So the band brought in Bob Slawek on Vocals. The band went under the name “First Love” and soon performed at the Hemmens Auditorium Battle of the Bands. The band took first place and won “cash plus recording time”. As time went on the band changed its name to “Black and White” and soon became very popular on the Illinois Club Circuit. The band was able to get a full length album together “Play to Win” before they broke up.
