Danville, VA

 The band played the southeast as well with an occasional
                   trip to Florida, Mississippi, Alabama. Group was unique: no guitar player!.
                   Line up was 2 keyboard players, 2 drummers, ( one doubled on Coronet)
                   electric bass, & reeds. All members did vocals. Band played everything from
                   Argent to Sly Stone, Tower Of Power, Gary Wright and even Jeff Beck. Also,
                   played a medley from the rock opra Jesus Christ Super Star that was always
                   a crowd pleaser. Band was formed in 1976.
