2013… “Back To The Garden 1969” Five years and still going strong!
Last summer, the band was back on the outdoor concert trail. We performed at concerts in Mahopac, Mamaroneck, Pawling, Haverstraw, Somers, Harrison, Lake Carmel, Danbury, Port Chester, and White Plains. The weather was HOT! So was the music!!
While the crowd danced in the raindrops, we rocked the Katonah American Legion. On the Fourth of July, we brought the good vibes to a huge crowd at the Peekskill Riverfront Fireworks. In August, we celebrated Woodstock’s 44th anniversary at Palaia Winery.
In September we returned for our annual visit to the island at Echo Bay Yacht Club’s Pig Roast. October saw the band rocking the Washington Township High School 40th Reunion.
Throughout the year, we appeared at old favorites The Towne Crier Cafe (at both the old Pawling, and the new Beacon locations!), The Turning Point, Spectators, Pete’s Saloon, and 12 Grapes. We also made our debut at a fantastic new venue, The Winery At St. George.
2013 saw the arrival of new bass player Tom Sprock, who replaced our good friend Mike Garner. Mike is now appearing with The Cameos. We wish Mike well in his new endeavor, and we’re sure he will be doing a gig or three with us down the line.
We are so happy to have made so many new friends in our travels over the past five years, as well as reuniting with many old faces from our past. We look forward to seeing you again soon, and meeting more new folks along the way.
We continue to be knocked out by the tremendous support our fans have shown us! So THANK YOU!!!!
We have tried to capture the music, but also the spirit, of the Woodstock Era. Judging from your reaction, we think we have succeeded.
To be continued…
Gary, Larry, Bob, Annie, Fred, and Tom
