The Band:

Drums: Darrell Verdusco
Vocals: Cian Coey

Randon Notes:
-Had to do a double take to notice that Stephanie Calvert was not on stage. Cian Coey did a fantastic job but no mention as to why Stephanie was not there.
– Mickey really drew some applause when he mentioned that he is a Bills fan for life after the QB (Josh Allen) helped him win his fantasy football league last year.
– It is simply amazing how great Mickey’s voice still sounds. He has not lost any range.
– Guitarist Roth has been in the band since 2012 and the rest of they band has been together since 2000. That would explain why they sounded so tight even after only playing 11 or so shows this past year.
– The show marked the band’s final show of 2021.

Songs the band should add:
No Way Out
Beat Patrol
Before I Go
Tomorrow Doesn’t Matter Tonight
Winds Of Change
Wild Again
It’s Not Enough
