Its been a crazy two weeks, so I’m trying to keep up with the individual blogs before I forget to… They’ll be shorter than my longer-winded ones :)
Casualty at the Saint, Asbury Park, NJ – Friday, June 10th, 2011
If you haven’t heard by now, Jeff’s old band “The RiffSurfers” (that I managed – against my will LOL), are no more. <insert huge sad face here> No dramatic fight between the 5 J’s (Jeff Hornlien, Jimmy Diamonde, Jenna D’Onofrio, John Kraemer & James Hannon (umm, that’s me), but things weren’t happening, and we all eventually went different directions. I went on to promote my book “Lost Boys of the Bronx: The Oral History of the Ducky Boys Gang“; John became Johnny Rox and joined the band “Tasting Grace” (see my review of their shows here and here); Jenna joined the successful cover band Decades Invasion and is probably playing somewhere near you this weekend (and next weekend, and the weekend after that); Jimmy became James Giunta, Certified Hypno-Therapist and currently has a thriving practice in Red Bank, NJ. And Jeff started up this new band called “Casualty” with old RiffSurfer drummer Sean O’Connor and bass player Nicky Vitucci. So now that you’re all caught up with the history of the band, lets move on to their first show.
