Setting up some gigs for the Summer after an unplanned hiatus due to Ricky’s Rotator cuff surgery. We should be up and running soon. In the meantime, I’ve been gigging with
Triii Klops:
Ethan Meixsell: Guitar and Vocals
Peter Gusmano: Drums and Vocals
Randy Gregg:Bass and Vocals
Michael Accurso: Lead Vocals

Trii Klops has given me the opportunity to play a lot of the music I grew up listening to, but haven’t had a chance to perform until now. A lot of Rhoads era Ozzy, some Dokken, Van Halen etc. We’ve had a blast at our gigs. More dates to announce soon.
