Does anyone remember "the Bank"? It was an after hours place downtown somewhere. Dave(last name escapes me) had something to do with it. I remember a paranoid hallucinogenic evening down there with Kelly Jacob. I had an artshow there. I think Rico Berry was there amongst others. My recollection is somewhat cloudy

Was that the place on Michigan Av? Did you play there? I think I saw your band there once.

I bekeive it was Michigan Ave. It was an actual bank. We may have played there; I was probably pretty f'd-up which was my custom at the time. Do I know you, George? Do you know Rico Berry or Dave Roberts? Would love to hear of any sightings!

I was a guitarist with The Ghost Band. We may have played a venue together somewhere (Alvins?), but I don't think we've ever formally met. Enjoyed your band though.

I remember the ghost band-Mike Night, Leonard Johnson,who else was in it? I heard that Leonard is very ill-true? Do you still play? Do you know Paul Steele or Rodriguez? R seems to have dropped off the face of the earth. We used to talk on the phone every few months. I liked the ghost band.

Ron Kopack(guitar), Ralph Koziarksi(sax), and when I joined the late Heinz Jaeger was also playing guitar. After Mike and Heniz left, we had a number of personel changes before we ended up with Jon Wearing(voc), Roberto Warren (percussion), Keith Buchanan, Ron Kopack, and myself on guitars, Len on drums, Ralph (sax) and Jim Bradlin on bass.

Len has been battling some health probs, but I stopped by and he was looking good, though he's still hurting from recent surgery. We had a nice jam right before his surgery, and plan to again as soon as he gets his strength back.

Paul Steele doesn't ring a bell, but I've known Rodriguez forever. Haven't seen him in a while though.

I'm still playing, mostly with Muruga Booker right now. Check out www.gkerby.com Still need to get GhostBand photos up there, though.
