Panalure is a Milwaukee band with an eclectic mix of folk, rock, country and even some jazz influences. If you’re looking for a label, call it “Americana.”


Bob Schneider on drums and Bob Jennings on keys and sax are veteran Milwaukee musicians who also play with Semi Twang and Paul Cebar’s Tomorrow Sound. Fiddler Susan Nicholson of Frogwater is the newest member of the band and appears on Panalure’s latest recording. Slide guitarist Michael DeBoer has been a staple of the Milwaukee music scene for years. Bassist Ken Hanson is a founder of Panalure and also plays with Milwaukee favorites Killer Joe and Longacre.

Kodak Panalure is a panchromatic black-and-white photographic printing paper. Panalure was developed to facilitate the printing of full-tone black-and-white images from colour negatives – a difficult task with conventional orthochromatic papers due to the orange tint of the film base. Panalure also finds application as paper negatives in large format cameras. It is generally not suitable for conventional black-and-white printing, since it must be handled and developed in near-complete darkness.
