FLASHBACK FOTO: Name the Band! Win a Prize!

Flashback Foto

Sad to report, but there was no winner in last week’s FLASHBACK FOTO contest.

But it’s Thursday once again, which means that it’s time for another new installment of FLASHBACK FOTO, and you’ve got another chance to play. As usual, we went digging, digging, digging through the vast underground Nippertown archive bunker to unearth yet another fabulous band promo photo from years gone by.

Thanks to the fine folks at the Spectrum 8 Theatres in Albany, we’re giving away a FREE PAIR OF MOVIE PASSES to the third commenter who correctly identifies this band. Please keep in mind that all of the weekly Flashback Fotos are of local Nippertown bands of yesteryear, which should help steer you away from guesses like the Taking Back Sunday, the Happy Mondays and Til Tuesday.

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

So sad, but once again there was no winner. In fact, no one guessed the correct band name. While several readers correctly identified trumpeter Bob Button (second from right, in the shades), this photo is not of the Sharks, but rather one of his post-Sharks bands – CARIBE MAMBO.

Please check back every Thursday afternoon, when it’s time to win prizes and play FLASHBACK FOTO once again…
