Fray’s Band from the Barvarian Inn















Ronnie Fray: September 8 at 4:56pm Facebook

Just think- It started out to be a place I could do a ‘single’ show! But than along came Clay, and Hal a year later. Hired Dick Harris to run lights and sound. (Sully kept knocking down walls.) Finally, I drove to Buffalo to recruit Dale Thomas on lead guitar. I called Carlos Clavara in L.A. and talked him into bringing his pedal steel to play with us for a while. We played there a few years, then we started travelling again. It was a great experience. Wouldn’t trade it for the world. Thanks Sully and ‘THANKS’ Grand Rapids Michigan.
