This Blog is designed to introduce you to musicians and bands that played in Wilmington, Delaware in the 1970’s and 80’s and many of them are still actively playing today in 2016. I first heard their music in the early 70’s when I attended the University of Delaware but I moved to Salt Lake City until 1988. After that I returned to Delaware and later re-met some friends and met new friends who play music and keep local music in the Delaware, Pennsylvania area active and alive.
The BlUE ROCKS, MARK KENNEALLY AND ROCKETT 88 WERE TWO OF MY FAVORITES.
