I followed links starting at Steve Walsh's (of KANSAS) fan site and ended up on your page eventually. I'm glad I did! You are a pretty tight band with great musicianship and vocals. I hope you can get some stuff up on You Tube to expand your audience and get out there more. Will be taking a trip 'east' soon and hope I can see you perform. I'll be buying your CD...... T

I found your site by accident and am glad I did. I have followed the group KANSAS for many years and your music strikes me in the same vein, with the changes in time signatures etc... great musicianship and vocals... Hope you get some stuff up on You Tube so your audience and reach grows. Ill be ordering your CD TIm

Hi Guys,

Glad to reconnect after all these years. Music sounds great, keep it going! Hope to catch you sometime, somewhere. I'm playing for a church band regularly, both guitar and bass these days, trying to learn home studio stuff. Gotta be doin' it..

Take care, God bless..

Your site keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

You guys rocked tonight. I could've just stayed and listened forever. You are a great band and I am sad that you are not going to be together; but very grateful I got to see your last performance (hopefully not) together. Tommy was awesome and I loved the music after wards. I enjoyed every bit of the show. Thanks!!!!

Is the Harvest Music venue going to be ready by this Friday?


October 21, 2009

Hey Sheryl! We met back when Mr. S passed away and again sadly when Mrs. S. passed. We were all such a close neighborhood way back a family. He has always been like a big brother to me.I think the whole neighborhood was a fan of Bill's (even the adults)and a few of us still reminise to the days of the community center dances and the old jam sessions on Harrell St.! I am so glad that he has been able to follow his lifelong dream of being a musician.My son has the band's CD and loves it! I hope that when Bill joins you in Fla. he finds a group he can jam with! Much luck to you guys in Fla. and to Bill in his ongoing musical journey. To Echo, keep making great music!

Hi, You guys are an awesome band with a very unique sound that is timeless! I know that all of you are sad that Fish(Bill) is moving and leaving the band. But if I know him an well as I think I do, he will still be a contributing force no matter the miles in between NC & FLa. I guess I am one of those people who can say I knew him when(Fish)that is. I grew up across the street from Bill in Murfreesboro and for as long as I can remember he was playing music night and day! He was in several teenage bands and even had groupies! And I was one. It was a tight neighborhood back then and all of us spent many hours listening to his "jam sessions". And most of the kids in the area grew up going to "the dances" at the local community center with one of Bills early bands. He was a great talent then and still is. You all have been very blessed to be able to make great music together all these years! I wish you guys all the luck in the world as you continue your music and to Bill also as he begins life in sunny Fla! Please tell him hello for me and lots luck! Just tell him AliceJane still hears him music comming from his living room on Harrell St.!

Thanks for the shout-out Rusty, and thanks to Echo Park and Melissa Reaves for a rockin' Friday night last week. You guys sounded great.

Wow, it's great to hear that you guys are still around. The "back in the day pictures" bring back a ton of memories. BTW I think I remember who won the battle of the bands but you were robbed! Rusty, I've always had much respect for your musicianship and passion. It's a shame we never worked together. How did that not happen? Maybe it will.

Hey I was listening to Boone's local radio station 100.7 WZJS this morning and I heard that song Ashley playied before 9am and It blew me away. It was hitting me like the band RUSH. The bass sounded like Getty Lee with great detail. WOW I would like to hear more stuff from ECHO PARK. I was very impressed!!!! I thought when she intro'd the song I was going to hear another song - MAN WAS I WRONG - BIG TIME!!!! How Did you guys do that? I was blown away!!!!
