  1. This song and this band still resonates 40 years later,they could sell out anywhere anytime and they turned down 1b 10 years ago to reunite.

  2. Resonates and brings back fond memories of heading into the Vernon Lodge Disco on Friday nights. In the Courtyard first for some Irish Mist or Ballantynes to get started, then into the disco for dancin’ and action.
