Homebase: Downey, CA (Los Angeles southwesterly)
Founded early 1968, we were a relatively unknown show working
out of South-of LA from '68 thru early '70's. I would guess
we did 100 or more gigs. We had the privilege of working
at least sevral dozen shows with big name groups. We worked
arenas, movie theaters, dance
halls, college and school gyms and even smaller. Always
yearning for a fixed venue!
Then a move to NoCal, some barfly shows in the early '80's.
Then back to LA and several benefit nostalgia show/dances
in '85/86 and finally (so-far) a Rave in LA in '90.
In between all shows, new effects and equipment were brought
oniline and older stuff retired.
The show is currently stored and ready for the resurrection!
The imagery is 99% abstract and all custom created. The
overriding purpose of the show is to complement and reflect
the rhythm and intensity of the band's music, no attempt
is made to be lyrically or specifically interperative other
