Thanks to Eric Keyes for clarifying for us, the live shot is actually not from the band’s first show at Fender’s (guess we are still waiting for one!) and the group shot was taken outside the Roxy in West Hollywood, June 19th 1987.
The live shot also looks like it is from 1988.
Wow, can this day get any better? Well, I’m sure it could but we couldn’t ask for anymore on the band’s 25th live anniversary! Huge thanks to Tazy, Tony Meade and the whole Ska Parade crew for sharing two rare photos of us of the band back in 1987 —
including a live shot from the band’s first show at Fender’s Ballroom in Long Beach! So incredible! We have been so spoiled by the band and friends all day!
