    Hey Skawski, the band sounds great! Good to see you're still at it. During the virus-induced isolation this past month, I've been digitizing old reel-to-reel masters from my days of owning and running a commercial recording studio in Minneapolis. While sorting through 140 reels of aging mylar, I came across three reels of tape labeled "Brite Set Last Shows"... they are the last three shows I played with you guys at the Black Fox in Rolling Ghettos -- 1979, I think -- just before you left for Arlington, TX. Lots of Skawski guitar features on those tapes. Let me know if you're interested and we can try to figure out a reasonable way to get copies to you. See bernettmusic.com for contact info. Cheers, old friend.

    Hip Pockit played at our daughter’s wedding at Salvatores. They were amazing. So entertaining and so talented. They got the party started and kept it going. Every guest told us what a great band they are. They are more than a wedding band. They are entertainment pure and simple. So great. We have been to many of their performances over the years, but this one was the best. All of our guests had a wonderful time. Working with the band prior to the wedding was a pleasure. They provided sound tracks for the processional, recessional, and cocktail hour. We could not have asked for more. Thanks. You are the best. Wish we had another daughter.
