This is where it all started, this group played out under several
different names but the word that best described them is friends...Mark
with this group of musician friends, (pictured here L to R)
"It was about attitude...carefree, like minded
individuals that bonded in an atmosphere where anything goes, anything's
possible thinking prevailed. It was about having fun and doing whatever
we wanted that influenced us more than the rigid, narrow-minded restraint
of following the rules did. It was about self-expression, exploration
and discovery...and expressing ourselves creatively through music.
It was a time of learning, where nurturing each other's talents in
the spirit of fun as aspiring musicians enhanced each of us individually
as well as collectively in a profound way.
