Old Hudson Valley Bands

A Look Back At The Hudson Valley Music Scene



Gold Brik
A big favorite at the Tropical Inn, Route 9W in Port Ewen, around May of 1972 when this photo was taken. Members (left to right) are Barry Jackson (Hammond B3), Jimmy McTague (bass), Jody Sumber (drums), Mike Marnell (lead guitar), Barry Lown (trumpet and percussion), Johnny McTague (rhythm guitar), Pete (trumpet) and Joe Caplan (slide and valve trombone and percussion) who also supplied this photo to us. Besides club and college dates, Gold Brik played the Hudson River Festival and did a lot of radio station events.
