During these years a member of a different sort joined Golden Bough.
Nina Black, who had been listening to the band's music with her children almost as long as Golden Bough had existed,
arranged for the band to perform at her daughter's school.  Arranging the assembly was an enjoyable experience for Nina
and she was soon setting up school assemblies all over the Central Valley in California.  One thing lead to another,
and before long Nina had become Golden Bough's full time manager.  This proved to be a major change for the group,
as the quality and quantity of performances noticeably expanded.
