I Wanna Be Your Santa cover

Jason, Nicky and Tony Saldana play and sing on the new record (recorded September 16, 2022). And my friend and talented old colleague (and webmaster) Harry Thomas’ equally talented son Neo Arlo Thomas designed the cover artwork.

"These three guys have what it takes to turn a club into a beery, brawling frat party. As the set grows longer, the energy from lead guitarist Sal Dana, drummer Freddie Herman and Jett Bass gets hotter, higher . . . Garage band rock is alive and well."  --  music critic Bob Claypool, Houston Post
