I vaguely remember that name, I've been to the Staircase both the old and the new one plenty of times mostly to see and video tape 40 lb. head whom I'm good friends with.

I think they changed there name to riverside after a few years. Just saw 40lb. head @ breakers a few weeks ago, i think it was ronnie w.'s last show with them. Good as usual.

For Riverside I might have known the bassist, short stalky guy with long red hair but balding? I worked construction for a short time and he worked there.

I haven't seen the head play in a while and haven't seen the new guy. I was talking to Steve a few weeks back and he mentioned he was leaving. I go long ways back with those guys, knew them as kids. We used to do 8 canoe trips and Jay was my canoeing partner. Here's Jay, he's not even old enough to drink in this picture. LOL Second one is Jay, Z and Steve.

I had a huge album that spanned 4 or 5 years but I lost it in a fire but there is glimmer of hope because I found a bunch of negatives. I haven't been able to see what's on them yet.

Dont remember much what any of them look like, i was probably around 12 or 13, my uncle did the sound, i remember being at a few bars that arent around anymore like the staircase and barrels in the wyoming valley mall. A guy i work with has a polish luau in nanticoke every year, 20 lb. head played there a few times, been to seems like a million bazzars to see them also. Always a good time!

You might get to see them at the Greet and Meet! ... :D Haven't talked to them yet but I'm calling in some favors.

Here's a rare version of the empire:
