I spite of the billing mishap, this was the band’s grand return to Buff State College and with an early start-time of 21:00, which we found out later meant 9:00 pm. The band was used to starting at the clubs around 10:00-10:30 pm on most nights.  The social hall filled up into a big crowd that got out of control (just the way we liked it)!  Heck, what can you expect with winter gone, spring in the air and college students attending a $3.00 “all you can drink and drown!”
