It seems like I remember a lot of these local bands on an album that WOUR put out. I think I have it somewhere. Anybody remember that?
I remember a song called "Let It Slide" by The Frogs and another song called "Shorty's Dilemma" that was more country rock by a band I can't remember the name of.
There used to be a lot of good bands around here.
is that the same Frogs with Billy Corgan ?

The Frogs were: Paul Angerosa, Larry Fanelli, Brian Marcantonio and Dick Hoffman (God rest his soul). They played a lot of area gigs, mostly covers, a few originals, and they ROCKED. The Loft or 4 Acres were pretty good times,; remember the Oasis? That album put out by WOUR - I have it! WOUR supported all the local bands, they were "The Rock of central New York", remember?

I saw the band back in the early 70's playing at the Redfield Hotel.I got really stoned with these guys that night and had a great bunch of laughs.I think they said they were from Camden N.Y.

Alex Star was probably the best. I would follow him wherever he played. Great songs. He never really made it big though.

I was there. My girlfriends and I were Solid Oak groupies and followed them all over. Always the best party in town! Wednesdays The Florence Hotel for spaghetti, beer in mason jars and Solid Oak. Sundays were Pine Lodge or Oasis. Also, Bailey's Beach and Bar that was like a cellar built into a hill. We had legendary (think Dazed and Confused) beach party bonfires there.
And Four Acres was the place, for sure. Saw all the local bands (yes, starting around age 15)and quite a few future greats like John Cougar (before Mellencamp), Stillwater (Mindbender and model for movie Almost Famous)- was on the tour bus, Eddie Money, and fantastic Irish rock band, Horslips, to name a few.
Ah, yes. The glory days... thanks for the memories.

They are planning a 2015 reunion. Below is a link to the keyboard players website. He plays gigs in Saratoga when not on the road with the Brubeck's. His facebook page is a good resource for tour dates.

I got a secret to tell
and a point I wanna prove
there's so many ways to love
I get a thrill when you can't move
at the end of the day
I'm fired up and ready to shoot
cruisin' for a bruisin'
with an offer you can't refuse

Crack the whip!
Make me wanna Crack the whip
We are gonna take it to the limit
'Cuz it hurts so good... good

I'm a mighty mean man
I'm gonna ride you to the top
If it hurts too much
Well, it's too late for me to stop
You can call me cruel
I'm like a razor on the run
My hands are wet, Got no regrets
Cuz I'm just having fun

Crack the whip!
Make me wanna Crack the whip
We are gonna take it to the limit
'Cuz it hurts so good... good
