Professor Norman Gary is not an ordinary performer. An emeritus professor of apiculture at the University of California (Davis), Gary also plays Dixieland music in a human ensemble called the Beez Kneez Jazz Band.
He generally goes solo for the bee-encrusted gigs. Hollywood has used Gary’s bee-wrangling talents, though seldom his clarinet, in more than a dozen movies.
Among them: The X Files; Fried Green Tomatoes; Invasion of the Bee Girls; and Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh. See the whole story in The Guardian.
