Buffalo Evening News ‘Gusto’ ad – “Perousia” plays McVans on Sunday July 1st, 1979
Parousia played McVan’s many times, one of those being July 1, 1979 – a Sunday, 2 days after Pegasus did one of their awesome shows. We’ll use that as an excuse to publish our bootleg tribute to Pegasus here.
Pegasus was a ridiculously talented and dedicated set of young musicians, fronted by an outrageous and charismatic creative artist. The result was one of those amazing experiences you can only chalk up to a magical chemistry that cannot be manufactured on demand.
- Mark Freeland – Vocals
- Vince Cooper – Guitars
- Kent Weber – Bass
- Steve Trecaise – Keyboards
- Chuck Cavanaugh – Drums
Here’s a few pictures, and I know I have an awesome bootleg I will post here (as soon as I find the original and digitize it) until I receive a “cease and desist” from the boys. 😛
Freaking amazing! Oh yeah, did I mention Parousia played McVan’s too?
