Strange Brew / The Early Years...

Back in the 1990's... You would've found us playing at Cafe' Accapella on Main Street in Hackensack... or at Henley's in New Milford (two of our favorite haunts - both, long gone). Or maybe you caught us at Rock N' Roll Cafe on Bleeker St. in NYC... or at Camelback in the Poconos.

Wherever we were, we put on a great show and we had a blast doing it... and one of our favorite parts of the night was going to the diner after a gig. (Those poor waitresses...)

Over a 6 year period, we had the great pleasure of performing with some very talented muscians: Lead guitarists... Barry Rose, Sam Flores, Chris Kelly and Rob Melosh... On bass, we had Kendall Bruce and later on, Dave Grego. We had Dennis Palmer on drums, after he came off a long run with the Door's cover band, Crystal Ship.

And then there were the "Dan Jams"....
We'd have about 25-30 people over at our house, with a full band set up... and guys like Vince Martell, from Vanilla Fudge would come over and jam with us.  It was magical...

A few old photos are below... Have fun reminiscing. And be sure to check out our new show. It's bigger and better than ever!

Peace out...
And we hope to see you soon!

This is Lou Albero... Our 'Mick Jagger' guy - who we featured as one of our guest performers
from time to time... as well as Suzette Dorsey (see below), doing 'Tina Turner'.

And a couple of our old printed Posters survived:


 

We performed all over the NY/NJ metro area!

 

 

AND... we were actually pioneers in technology, even during the mid 90's.

Um... we're talking 'dial up', baby.

 

This was the very first internet broadcast - over a T-1, direct from Crossroads!

People were listening to our live performance - from all over the globe,
'streaming on dial up' (and probably dropping out on dial up)... Lol.
