We opened for the Kevin Borich Express at Western Michigan University. Played at a very sparsely attended Toga Party at the hockey rink. FF has probably heard of Kevin Borich. It was very weird to see a very empty hockey arena with people milling around in sheets.
Huh! Small world. KBE were an enduring Oz pub band who were at their peak in popularity here as a live act in the mid - late 70s. Radio-wise, they were kind of a one hit wonder with “Gonna See my Baby Tonight”. Kevin’s son Lucious had some success in the 90s and 2000s as one third of modern prog rockers “Cog”.
The most bizarre place I have played in was The Dust Hole pub in Salisbury, UK… It was part of the annual music festival. Bands were simply raffled out to local pubs and paid from a festival budget. It was that small we had to play 2 x 2… Bass and Drums at the rear and Guitars + Vox at the front…
What makes it more amusing is that there was no room for the PA, so the barman did it all for us from the main bar!
