  1. I wanted to thank you for a great time this past Saturday 8/15/15 @ Fat Cat’s. It was my real first night out since spinal surgery put me in a wheelchair. You did an amazing job on “America” and Bob playing his wireless keyboard next to my wife was so cool. Every song you guys did was spot on perfect. At the end of the show, you asked the crowd to think of any songs you may interested in adding in your playlist. One I think you would do very well is “Ridin’ the Storm Out” by REO Speedwagon. Anyhow, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for a great night that I’ll long remember. oh also, I was wondering if the band has a youtube channel? You now two new fans for life.

    t song…and we will get to work on the REO tune! Also – we are in the process of putting together a channel with a lot of our videos and will let you know. Thank again!

  3. I was wondering if you guys have thought about a little Lynyrd Skynyrd? You guys are great and play everything well. You play Baba O’Riley fantastically, and really appreciate that one a lot. Keep up the good work. Dave Bornino
