Systems that Really Rock
After creating that simple list (actually, a simple written system) worked so well, I started organizing other things to move our band forward. We expanded our territory, playing from New York to California, across Canada—even opening for BB King at Harrah’s in Nevada, at one point.

We were happy to have a record out in 1981 that netted us a mention in Billboard Magazine and got played by some 80 radio stations throughout the south.
