Jill Schmidt, June 18, 2016 - Speaking of Battle of the Bands...we (Void Where Prohibited) took 3rd in regional and 5th in State in '69. Not too bad for 4 -15 yr old's and one 16 yr old. L-R Rick Oblamski, Jill Badke Schmidt, Dale Wirt, Chuck Wise, TOP- Marc Sauer (now Marcus Ashley aka Ashly)

Mike Reilly - Is this the only band you were in Jill?
Jill Schmidt - Oh no...after VWP in was in True Identity Blues Review (from Milw) then a shoot off of that one called Johnathan, Then, Normandy Sound Invasion, Hot Bachs, Did a quick shot with a road band and came back and put together Sunrise..(we had 3 girls) Then Powerful People, Heart and Soul after that, Uptown Express and that turned into New York. That started out on weekends and became a road band. Played every Hoffman House, Holiday Inn, Ramada Inn and a million freestanding clubs between Wyoming, Colorado, West Virginia, Minnesota and Louisiana. I got pictures.....lots and lots of pictures....

Below: Jill Schmidt - Menomonee Falls North Online Reunion Page -June 18, 2016: Later, Mark Sauer aka Marcus Ashly and Gregg Bertucci played with JJ and the Jets.
anyone got the names of the other 3?

Darlene Sayler - Jerry Brookins, John Windisch

Jill Schmidt - Thank you Darlene!

Mike Reilly - This another MF band?

Mike Reilly - I assume that JJ is the dude in the back. Mark Sauer
aka Marcus Ashly is the 3rd from the left, How does everyone else line up?

Jill Schmidt - Gregg is far right. Him and Mark Sauer
aka Marcus Ashly are from the Falls, don't know about the rest
