Sexy Sadie Band: Beatles Tribute Band


This was a band I was in from around 1978 to 1985. It consisted of three core people, Steve Ruben, Eric Weinstein, and myself. We had various drummers but mostly it was Steve Gallop and percussionist Scott. We played alot of Cream, Eric Clapton's Derik and the Dominoes, Santana, Rolling Stones, Allman Brothers, Byrds, etc, and some originals. We of course were also very loud, but not very bad. We could jam on the same song for hours, sometimes meandering into other songs. I'll upload some songs when I get a chance.

From about 13 to 25 years old I was in various incarnations of bands with Robert Barsky (who sadly passed away in 2008), and Judd WIlliams.  We were loud, obnoxious and not so good.
Our 1st name was The Velours, named after the material that our shirts, which we performed in, were made.  Rob's brother inlaw, who played the trumpet as a hobby, was in the garment industry and thought it was a "cool" name !  To the left is a Midnight Hours concert notice and to the right is a group shot.
Our next name was The Midnight Hours.  I think this name was again influenced by Rob's brother inlaw, due to his interest in horn playing bands of which our namesake, Wilson Pickett's "Midnight Hour" surely was one of the greats.  My mother, who was a fantastic fine artist, made up a great logo for the drum head that mimicked the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Logo, but had the words "The Midnight Hours" instead.
The Midnight Hours link to the right is to a website that was developed by Rob.  He also has his own website, Future Music that can be accessed by clicking "home" at the bottom of the page.  Now when I listen to his voice it sounds surprisingly like the lead singer of Kings of Leon.
