I added the band's name to the thread title ... hopefully that helps.

Gary Burke certainly does have an impressive list of performers he's recorded and toured with! Bob Dylan. Joe Jackson. Graham Parker. Plus he was he drummer/percussionist at Radio City Music Hall for 4 years. Very cool.

Peace, Mark

I'm hoping she ends up jamming with the band and dancing around the Lanc playing Professor Louie's keyboard. ;):)

Great job Mark, hope to make it out to this.

As much as I'd like to take the credit for bringing this show to KW, Diesel Ryan (aka sam stone) and his business partner Tony deserve most of the credit. Having said that, thanks for the kind words, and hopefully you'll be able to make it out for to this show.

Peace, Mark
