John York-This was the third year that we featured John York at one of our concerts.† John, a singer-songwriter and former member of the legendary folk-rock band, The Byrds. has been a constant musical creative force in support of acts like The Mamas and the Papas, Johnny Rivers, Rick Danko, the Sir Douglas Quintet, and Rolling Stones keyboardist Nicky Hopkins. He even played bass for the blues legend, Lightin' Hopkins.

††††††††††††† John brought with him CHAD WATSON, legendary bass player for
Janis Ian, Delaney & Bonnie, Little Feat, Charlie Rich, Freddy Fender and countless other artists.† Chad backed John up on bass and added some great harmonies to his songs.†
††††††††††††† The show was filled with familiar Byrds tunes for sing-along, fine original songs and great interpretations of songs from the 60ísera. It was truly a splendid evening and the audience really enjoyed the show..
