Saddened to hear Charlie Daniels passed away. In 1999, both his band & FPB played at the New York State Fair on the same day. He made us feel welcome backstage and we hit it off great! Prayers to his family, band & fans. #CharlieDaniels #FPB #FPB40 #NYSFair ... See MoreSee Less

Those were the good times. Remember when Uncle Joe would sing at weddings, "Don't Get Married, Don't get Married Now.

OMG ... I remember when we were kids our family used to go to the outdoor beer garden and dancing on a wooden deck ... or the hall on Myrtle St ...

Uncle Joe Boza would play the trumpet at Lemko's or the Polish Community Ctr. Never forgot those days.

Great bands, miss those years

May I ask where Marion Lush was from please, and is he still alive

Great bands, great festivals and fabulous dancers

The good old days, New Brass..

What a bunch of great guys!
