Special Guest at last Saturday's Cha Cha's Show

As I had mentioned in my previous post, we were booked for a last minute gig at Cha Cha's on the Boardwalk in Coney Island last Saturday night. Here's my impression;

Rock and Roll Circus as seen on The Twilight Zone! First of all, right on the beach and even at night alot of people are walking around practically naked. Second, the place is filled with eccentrics. The "Master of Ceromonies" was Luigi Babe from All Mobbed Up. One of the "attractions" that night was a bizarre S&M rodeo. You can visualize that for yourself.

Two other attractions that night were welcome ones, the first being Michael Zuko who I've had the pleasure of socializing with (and who rescued me from myself one night for which I will be forever grateful) but never heard play before. My loss because he is a talented singer and songwriter and a great showman to boot.

The second was non other than THE KING OF POWER POP HIMSELF! Paul Collins! who performed a solo acoustic set of his hits (Hangin' On The Telephone, Don't Wait Up For Me, Rock and Roll Girl, etc...) for our very enthusiastic crowd.

what a pleasure it was to meet and to listen to him.

All in all, a splendid time was had by all!

Last Minute Show!

After slaving over preparing our CD for actual sale we can finally get back to what we are in this band for in the first place; playing music!

We were invited to appear at the Wold Famous Cha Cha's on the Boardwalk in Coney Island this Saturday (august 7th).

I'm not supposed to mention this but I heard from a very reliable source that a very special member of power pop royalty is going to be making an "unannounced" solo acoustic appearance that night as well. don't tell anyone I told you...
