The Boyz

The pride that I take in my short stint at the helm of a live-music club ( back in the mid-80s) is partly due to a band called The Pressure Boys.

When the house lights went down at Rhythm Alley and the stage lights came up, no band got the people moving on the dance floor - or kept them dancing longer - than the Boys did.

The band broke up twenty years ago but, this upcoming weekend, the Pressure Boys will reunite to play a benefit for the fight against cystic fibrosis.

The details about the fund-raiser can be found on their website . Plenty more about the band can be found via the website of author Peter Cashwell , including a link to some photos of band members, past and present.

And, if you've got an ounce of sense, you'll be there - with your dancing shoes on.

I sure will.
