Sept. 24, 1978

The Guise's first gig*.
Personnel: DS/JO/MM/FM/JC "The first of a series of grueling auditions then took place, with some of New York's finest musicians vying with each other for a place in the band. Selected for the first Guise gig on September 24, 1978 at a small east-side club called 'Eric' were bassist John Caruso and drummer Frank 'Boom Boom' Marcario." (from Authorized History of the Guise)

Songs: Song list not available | Village Voice advertisement (ad suggests a Sunday 9/25/78 date for this gig, which doesn't seem possible, as 9/24/78 was Sunday that year. Also, we are listed as "The Guys.")

* The Guise was the precursor of the mature band, Rollo.
