Fiasco  1970-1971   Allentown, PA
This 8-piece rock horn band with their memphis r&B sound and influences like the bands Chicago, Blood Sweat and Tears, and Edgar Winter Band was one of pennsylvania and new jersey's most popular bands of the genre.
Fiasco existed for a few years in the early 70s and focused mainly on original songs and playing in larger concert venues.
In the band's short existence with talented musicians and gifted vocalists, they released two IMMENSELY popular singles: How I feel and hey hey head. with the success of these singles they got offers to open for Santana at the nazareth raceway, the James Gang at muhlenberg college, and several concerts with Bill Chase including saylor's lake pavillion.
the Fiasco band proved to itself and to its fans, that it was anything but a fiasco.

Additional Info:


Fiasco existed for approximately one and a half years and focused mainly on original songs and playing in larger concert venues. In its short existence with talented musicians and gifted vocalists, opening for Santana, the James Gang and several concerts with Bill Chase, the Fiasco band proved to itself and to its fans, that it was anything but a fiasco.

With original horn section arrangements created by Bob Scheminek, and a rhythm section composed of Ron Reiterman (drums), Craig Kastelnick (keyboards), Dave Frederick (bass), and Dan Frederick (guitar), Fiasco carved their own niche in the Lehigh Valley music scene along with an explosion of talented bands that emerged at that point in time.
