Flashback Foto: Name the Band, Win a Prize!

It’s that special, special time again…A FREE PAIR OF PASSES to the Spectrum 8 Theatres in Albany will go to the fifth commenter who correctly identifies this band. Please keep in mind that all of the Flashback Fotos are of local Nippertown bands of yesterday, which should help steer you away from guesses like Trixter and Tesla.

To make it fair, comments on this post won’t show up until we announce the winner on Monday afternoon. One comment per person, please, and be sure to leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. Good luck! Congratulations to Todd Nelson!

    I recognize Liza Minelli and Peter Allen in the middle of the photo, but I don’t remember them ever playing in a band with Gene Sennes, who I think is the guy on the left. Have no idea who the guy on the right is.
