Dark Star Band

Gary Steven Fuller WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DID DARK STAR PLAY April 2, 2010 at 8:33am

Mike Truttschel Dark Star was a band that we actually went to a lawyer and made it into a corporation and had a booking agency because we were pretty serious about making it successful. We did a lot of 70's rock like The Doobies and Foreigner and did some 80's rock which was current at the time and of course some Beatles. It was a fun band because we all were friends too.

Gary Steven Fuller DO YOU HAVE RECORDINGS ALSO April 2, 2010 at 9:24am

, Dave Kenney (drums), Dean Joecks, Dave Kearns and yours truly... Mark Kenney

January 24, 2016 - Dave Kearns: I remember that gig. It was at one of the picnic pavilions at Lannon quarry. Office Denzen came and told us he was getting complaints that we were to loud. Instead of shutting us down, he sat in for a while on keyboard.

    Mark Kenney: Was it a gig or a party? I vaguely remember Denzin sitting in.

    Dave Kearns: I think it was a party.

    Mike Truttschel: Keyboard? I thought it was drums. Oh boy here we go....

Blake Kenney: Classic

Dean Joecks
: OMG FUNNY, my grandchildren wanted to know why Grampa was in his underwear!

Tony Teofilo
: Did this band make any recordings? I need to hear some.

Dean Joecks Might be able to dig up something Tony Teofilo.

Tony Teofilo
: Good. I want to hear what you sound like with your shorts on.

Dean Joecks: I think the comments this picture has produced goes to prove what I've always said, "If I had a dollar for every woman who thought that I was unattractive, I would actually BE attractive".

Mark Kenney: I just have to say that I have never been more attracted to you, than I am at this moment...

Joey Alonso: From your sailor cousin.... "Nice Shorts!!!!"

Pete Howard: Last time I saw shorts like that, it was the 80's, and the guy was on in line skates with a boom box on his shoulder blasting the BeeGees.

Mike Reilly: Dean, looks like you came to the gig directly from a 60s basketball game!

Mike Truttschel: I can't believe that nobody noticed Mark's broken string.

Dean Nolde: I did Mike, but I didn't want to embarrass the crap out of notice I didn't comment on Dean's hot pants!
