It's solo and duo now.... - June 8, 2014

I'm playing solo almost exclusively now...and some duo events with Gary. Had to happen eventually....

Changes!!! - February 22, 2013

Well, things are always changing. Gary is going to kind of play it by ear as far as playing with the band...he'll just play when he's otherwise, we're a trio...consisting of Steven C., Rockin' Rick, and Charles the Savage!
And Steve will be doing more solo gigs, and fewer if any duo gigs with Gary.
Rock on everyone!!!

Band Back Together??? - March 28, 2010

UPDATE! - June 1, 2009
