According to Vienna Connection, “The band is made up of four 50-something Virginia Tech grads: Doug Sharpe on the keyboard, Zeke Gladstone on guitar, Gary Stein on bass, and Dave Signori on drums & vocals.” The sudden disruption of social life in March prompted Curtis Knocking to cancel their original plans following the social-distancing policies. Sharpe shared some of the band’s traditions, stretching back years.”

As per the Vienna Connection, “The band plays shows about once a month, mostly at local restaurants in Falls Church and Arlington, such as Dogwood Tavern, Clare & Don’s, Cowboy Cafe, Westover Beer Garden, and Ragtime. For many years, we have looked forward to practice & beers at our drummer’s house every Thursday night. However, due to the pandemic, we canceled all in-person shows and practices starting the second week of March.”
