"CMCC rocks tonight!"With those words from the wigged drummer, we did our best to deliver!
We were the final "act" of the evening, and the student body was hopeful to see their beloved teachers on stage, making a mess of it all. But we had the last laugh and rocked the joint instead!
This event was billed as the CMCC "Gong Show", a fun showcasing of student talent, and a bloody good excuse to drink beer!
The hook? Both Glenn and Jim Grilliot were faculty members at the time, and the students were dying to see the old guys play.
We only did 4 songs but they were good ones, and we left 'em wanting more. Which is always a good thing.
The "official" school recording was made on a continuous stationary camera at the rear of the auditorium on a tripod. The sound quality was not too good and the distance from the stage made it difficult to see clearly. BUT, this version is from a 2nd videographer who was around the stage area during the show, and the quality is much better and the feeling more intimate. Keep in mind that the original is over 25 years old and wasn't great quality to begin with.
Here then, the opening song. I hope you enjoy!
