    Saw them back in the early seventies in Corpus Christi Texas along with Malo (Suavesito) then again in McAllen Texas late nineties. These guys are just plane good.

    Hi from New Zealand. Managed to catch one of their concerts here in NZ but would be rapped if they come back again. One of the all time best bands ever. Been a fan from the 70’s. Keep rockin’ and stay safe.

  • Mike and Ruby Bard says:

    Could listen to you guys all day long. Been fans since 1972. Met you last year in Lancaster,Pa. Hope to meet again. God bless,take care.

    This brought tears to my eyes. Saw this great group often in the 70s. It was my boyfriend’s and mine “band”. Some of my pride possessions are the concert drumsticks and guitar picks he sent me in recent years. I will be devastated with the August concert cancelation. Love you

    Splurged on tickets to attend the June concert in Raleigh, NC. It was going to be a grand long weekend road trip for my husband and me (70-somethings, so THIS was going to be nirvana for us). Alas. SO disappointed…but happy to watch and re-watch this video as a bit of mournful/joyous recompense.
