    Spookie Daly Pride, what a great band!

  2. Greg says


    I was thinking the same thing when I was putting together this list. Whatever happened to them?

  3. Oswegomatt says

    Not sure, they were kind of a weird band that was obviously led by Spookie Daly but he had two separate bands one here in the northeast, mostly Boston I believe, and one in the Midwest, mostly St. Louis I think. I remember some great area shows between the capital district and Vermont that were fantastic. Just odd, funky, and awesome.
