More of the old days from the Scranton P.A. area is The Poets. In the St. Pat's Day parade in Scranton today, still booking dates. In the 1970's they added a greaser doo-wop style act called Frankie and the Corvettes. Back in the 70's when you would see where they were playing, that's where everyone would be.

Gaining info on the best band of Northeast P.A. Today we have Eighth Street Bridge, Button Gwinnett and this band rocks, Ralph (The Rock Band from Scranton P.A.). On Facebook we have the bands highlights. Go down to 2010 and you getthe first comment on The Nutshell. Many of these bands played there.The Nutshell in Lake Huntington N.Y. near the site of Woodstock. Now go to You Tube and find Ralph and some of the videos have comments of how in was at The Nutshell. This place and many more defines what we did in the 70's and into the 80's. What a great time, the memories and the stories we can't tell. Well, many some of them. Always more to come, Tom.
