Ye Olde Music Mall
Here’s some pics that recently turned up of Parousia at rehearsal in Room 7 of the Music Mall on Broadway in Cheektowaga NY.
Sporting our new faux Satin jackets and surrounded by the massive PA we assembled for big shows at the Port Colbourne Arena, Riverside Park, The Hertel Happening, Uncle Sam’s and Buff State, among others, the summer of 1981 kept us very busy, but we still squeezed in a couple rehearsals a week if we could manage it.
Patt Connolly bellows out a haunting melody. Either that, or yawns waiting for Barry and company to finish plugging in and tuning up.

Gerry ponders the meaning of the Tom-Tom.
Patt Connolly demonstrates Parousia’s innocent youthful exhilaration at the prospects of a bright future for the creative group. We quickly put an end to that nonsense.
