From Steele (memba them? circa 1970), Paraffin, Legend and many more musical points in between, these guys are what now remains of much of the great "old guard" of live bar music in Northern Berkshires. Make this a world class send off for them and pack the place Saturday night !

Then I suggest you stay home and listen to your bird. I have heard them many times not only are they talented but dedicated to the local fan base and they didn't loose site of their roots. I will be there Saturday night to bid them farewell and best of luck on their future endeavors.

You would not know talent if it bit you in the butt........I don't know a greater bunch of guy's and better mussicians than these guy's. If you don't have anything good to say don't say anything. Just go back to the cave that you live in !!!!!!!!!!

I saw the band a number of times over the years and they always had a lot of energy and were clearly having a good time -- two essential elements in a great band! "From Sheffield to Clarksburg..." - great line!

They don't just sound good, they are a great group of guys who know how to have a good time. They will be missed.

Hi Bob & Gary & the rest of the band. Good Luck to you guys in your future endeavours. I have enjoyed your music throughout the years! I remember Steele, Paraffin, etc. What memories!...Altiere's, Saints Hall, PNA, Taconic Trails...etc. You guys rock! Hope to see you at Bounti-Fare on Saturday. P.S. Bob, do you still have those certain articles of clothing in your base drum? Take care guys.

Wow. This band, and their music, has been a part of my life for so long, whatever will I do without them? A bit dramatic, yes, but true. Being an official "blankette" has been an honor. Thanks for the laughter, the fun, and even the times a love song made me cry. I will miss you!

If you consider 9 years a long time, you must be 11 or 12.

Awe, man... I'm so disillusioned! Say it ain't so!*pinches herself; sighs* Nope, not dreaming.:-P

Anyway, I love these guys. They're a fabulous band & I'm gonna miss them! Guess I'll have to start visiting Phil at his day job. ;)

Yeah, I know the feeling.
So many bands hopple for their 15 minutes of fame.
Actually, I've never even heard of them and I don't want to.
And I'm sure sure that your bird( you're a pet owner are you?) has much more a knick for musicality than a bunch of psuedo musician wannabees could ever have.
Bravo to you!!!
