Jim "Smokin' Fingers" Cipiti:
From my earliest of memories I
have always wanted to make Musick.
Along the way, Musick began making me.
As I learned to make Friends with myself, I became more of a Friend to Musick.
As Musick was making me, I was making Musick.
My Musick then started making Magick.
So began my quest for "someone" to make Musick with.I made Friends. We made Musick. It was Magick. My Song was heard and there was Harmony. And then I started wanting someone to make Musick for.
We made Friends. We made Musick. It was Magick too. My Song was heard and there was Harmony.
Before long, I wanted to find someone to share my Musick with. We too made Friends. We too made Musick. More Magick was made.
My Song was heard and there was Harmony.
I realized what I really wanted was to find someone and make Musick together.
We are True Friends. We are real Musick. We make Love; greatest of all Magick.
Our Songs are heard and there is Harmony Forever.
Now it is time to find someone to help make more of this Magick Musick.
We make Friends. We make Musick. It is Magick.
Our Songs are heard, but there's no Harmony yet…
So we look for someone else to make Magick Musick too.
We all make Friends. We all make Musick Together. It is more Magick.
Our Songs are heard, but still no Harmony…
We need to find a way to make Magick Musick in Harmony. We revisit old Friends. We make Amazing Musick. It's almost Love Musick.
Our Songs are heard and there is some Harmony.
Where's the true Harmony? Are the Friendships not fully developed yet??
If you take the Friendship out of the Musick, the Magick is gone and all Love is lost.
Hope remains however in the Forever Harmonies!
In Kyp's absence, his son Lon, Bassist Al Adkins from the , and Bassist Kim Sullivan from all stepped in durring his Recovery. These three fine muscians helped to keep on track. Each one of the three pushed to keep "the drive alive" and to help it grow. Kyp Returned to the band on December 4th at a performance at Alexander's Restaurante which had temporarily re-united this power lineup making one of the most entertaining and fun bands in the area today. In January 2000, Kyp decided to leave to persue his own project called ; a 50's group. Once again the lineup of changed with the addition of Kim Sullivan former bass player of . She is no stranger to this group as she is one of those responsible for keeping going and growing in Kyp's absence.
Bill Uhler now enters the picture as the new bass/vocal in the band. He enters and adds yet another strong driving piece to the picture. Bill's background makes him the best choice to keep the yearbook machine moving.
So Now the lineup is complete once again and will take on a new tone and style as we grow in our quest to be one of Cleveland's most fun, entertaining , and energetic Oldies/Classic Rock/Dance Rock groups ever.
