of Niagara was a success , as thousands cheered on
Kim Simmonds of Savoy Brown in Lockport New York. Sat starting at 1:00 pm
as the gates opened to a sunny fun filled day Carmen Productions

Square Circle Triangle Zee gives premier concert
The entertainment was of a mixed variety,as Gerald Ralston aka Willy Orbison
backed by The Square Circle Band ,consisting of Viv ,Bob and Patrick,provided
the musical backup of Keyboards,drums and guitar.Plus adding the
fantastic harmonica of Joe Carbo,to complete the musical arrangements.
Willy Orbison on vocals and guitar compleated the new band Square Circle Triangle Zee band which started out with a blues song of of John Lee Hooker titled “Bright lights Big City”,to a melody of Buddy Holly , and
Chuck Berry with a final tribute song with a change of a few lyrics, to Lockport City from Kansas City.the final song
done by The band members finished with a song by the Beatles.
Next in the lineup was Mike Hund and his group called “Hund Rock N Rollers“
This was a real taste of blues with vocals by Caitlyn ,who was on target and gave a great show , with Mike hund backing vocals and guitar,along with keyboards and drums.
Recently Caitlyn finished second in the 8 week competition at Town Pub in Tonawandas. She is and accomplished performer,working with assorted musicians as Jamie Moses on wed on Hertel Ave
Shadow lounge,and Mike Hund at the The Rock Bar on Niagara Falls Blvd on Sat nights.
The show continued with Flying Blind Blues Band,
Johnny Thunder and his band TerraNova followed by
Wanted by the FBI.
Evening Performance was Great:
Then came the headliner of the evening when Blues rocker Savory Brown took the stage at dawn,and this added the lights and people to cheer him on. Featuring the guitar playing riffs of Kim Simmonds ,it was like hearing every major guitarist , on stage at once . Changing guitars to the Flying V , it brought back the sounds of a variety of groups,that were created or that copied the styles of Kim Simmonds, of Savoy Brown.
I have to say this was one of the best bands I have ever seen perform,and over my 50 years of watching
and performing in musical groups,if you missed this great show for the low admission price of $5.00
( donation going to Niagara Hospice ) you missed a great show.
I have tryed to capture the assorted clips of the bands on my ( Flip Mimo camera) and will post as many as possible on www.willyorbison.com also will try to get them onhttp://www.youtube/ flipcameraman1 and www.wnyshows.com Watch for more shows by Carmen Productions.
