The band was supposed to play a show in Buffalo tonight. That show has been canceled.

RIP gentlemen...thanks for the music!

I remember Gerry Niewood from Simon & Garfunkel fame. Wow! :-(

That hurts, man! My condolences to the family and friends of the Niewood and Mellett families.

They will be missed.
