    The band. Anyone remember them? Still a very tight band but one of the things that go with age are the high notes on vocals. Still, they did very well but the outstanding performance was keys, just awesome.

    I think the only original members are the singer and the keyboard player but yes, they sounded very good and tight, even with those young whippersnappers. :)

    They all looked pretty old to me. I found out the keys player was with Argent for a few years and he's still amazing, the highlight of this morning's gig.

    The keyboardist is Rod Argent.

    They opened for Mahavishnu Orchestra when I heard them in FL.

    The highest notes may be fading, but Blunstone's voice is still angelic. And one of the most underrated bands Britain ever produced.

    So true. They have been gigging again for some time but not getting much attention.
    I enjoyed the info on the history of the band; not making enough money, the band broke up...Blunstone was actually selling insurance when "she's not there" was released in the USA and became a hit, along with the band. :cool:
