    Worked in the music biz as a teen (not unlike you). When we had a showcase in ’74 for America, it was at the Whisky. The band was concerned. We had to ask the bartenders and servers to stopĀ servingĀ and turn of the cigarette machines in the club as to not distract from the acoustic sound of the band. Haha. Thanks for a nice memory.

    They are a class act. They go from I need you, which is a slow love song to Sandman, which is almost classified as hard rock. Not a lot of bands vary this much. I just saw them two weeks ago and they still perform like they’re 25 years old.

    That’s great to hear Dawn. I’m still partial to “You can do Magic” as well.
