GETBACK BAND


"keepin' the faith"...since 1985

 

 

 

The 1989-1992 GetbacK band was:

VOCALS & GUITARS: BARRY EAMES
LEAD GUITAR: GLENN ENGEL
LEAD GUITAR & BKGND. VOCALS 'MICKEY' WISEMAN
DRUMS & BKGND. VOCALS 'RICH' BAKER
BASS GEOFF SPRANG
BASS & BKGND. VOCALS (1989) MIKE GRESCO

It's hard to believe that it's been (over) 25 years since GetbacK band ruled the rock and roll world!
OK, maybe not your world...but a darn big chunk of ours!

There were a lot of talented musicians who joined various editions of the GetbacK band
throughout the 80's and 90's, as well as the other bands which preceded it
in the 60's and 70's.

I take this opportunity to publicly thank them all most sincerely for their talent and comradery.
It was a blast to play with you all in
The Aztecs, The Executives, and
the GetbacK band!

Back in 1989 GetbacK went into the recording studio. The intention was just to cut a couple of demo's to be used as a marketing tool. It was so much fun that we did it again two years later in 1991.

Before we knew it, we had enough tunes for a small "album". And so, Cover Me! was born.

Back then, things were recorded on digital audio tape (DAT) which was then used to make tape cassettes! (ask your grandfather about those)

Cover Me was therefore distributed on a very limited basis. The master sat in a drawer for the last 15-20 years.

We now live in the Internet age where all things are possible and the DAT contents have finally been transferred to CD-ROM! Thanks to cheap MP3 technology these old tunes can live again, right here in your computer.

Interest in the old band continues to grow and I've been lucky enough to find pictures,
clips and video and add them to the site since writing the intro to the album above.

A special big GetbacK thanks to Dan Hebert who asked Glenn and me to play
at his wedding reception and taped us! In HD yet!
