Going through some old tapes lately. Trying to archive the best parts of them. Or at least, memories that I have forgotten over the years. Doug Goodwin and I (URONEPROG.com) would play together in other projects. Sometimes they were great and sometimes, just OK. But mostly because we worked amazingly well musically in everything we did.  One of these projects was called “The Gary Efford Band”. The video below, for now, appears to be the only copy I have of a small venue we performed at. Sadly, there is only the end of an excellent tune written by the drummer, Jeff Deyoung. The song I have is “Take Control” which we all had a blast playing. I have some other really bad video of a couple of rehearsals and if I find anything worth posting will post it here as well.

“Take Control”  – The Gary Efford Band

It seems that every piece of gear I own from the 90’s has something wrong with it! I spent the better part of the evening repairing my Sony cassette deck. And after fixing it, I ‘ve been looking for the studio version of the above song. Of course I haven’t found it yet, but there are plenty of other songs the Gary Efford Band recorded. I’ll start posting as time permits.

Usually the band lineup was Gary Efford, Doug Goodwin, Chuck Mills, Carl Jasper Hoffman and Jeff DeYoung. Other players included Elliot Anders (keys), Danny Loi (drums)
