Around 11:30 p.m. the eager crowd started pouring into The Huntridge Tavern — and they were electric!
Everyone was excited and wanted to see The Band with No-Name, led by Peter Fand and Aaron Guidry. Jim Lawrence, who was the opening act, began wrapping up his show, completing the first half of Radio Tribune’s Late Night Live Music from The Huntridge Tavern.
During the break Sorrento Pizza brought in 10 pepperoni and sausage pizzas — for some reason, the thought was that 10 pizzas would be too many for one night. They lasted all of 30 minutes!
Peter, Aaron and friends hit the stage around 12 midnight and from the very first notes, you knew you were in for a musical treat. In this world of electronically driven songs, it was refreshing to hear music from instruments the guys played for over an hour and a half, never losing the crowd once.
Early in the show Peter Fand asked the audience to come up with a name for this band that had none. There were a number of suggestions; however, the name is still not known as of this writing. Whatever the name is or will be does not matter — the guys were terrific and they wowed the crowd and that is all that counts.
It was a great night and a great show — and with that kind of great music, you’ll want to stay tuned in for the next show!
