A Video Photographer's View & Photos From Ed Richter

Just like in the old days, the infamous Scorgies videographers were in full force at the reunion. While Russ Lunn was shooting hi-def in the balcony, Ed Richter was taping from the stage and from the floor. Ed sent me this yesterday but, alas, I was too tired to post it.

Well kids it happened. Oh My God. NEW MATH Live. PERSONAL EFFECTS Live, THE PRESS TONES Live. If you read this Blog and you missed the show you really missed a part of Rochester’s recent History. Forget Renaissance Square. Forget the new Paetec office Bldg. None of that matters! History was made last night at the German House when the greatest reunion of Rochester’s legendary Bar & Club Scorgies happened. 400 plus friends shared a beautiful experience! The Music we loved, the friends we loved we all there.
Some personal friends: The Beardsley Sisters, Bob Martin, Gary Trainer, Peggy & Paul of course. Even an old girlfriend Roxanne showed up. Dick Storms, Dwayne Sherwood, Rock & Roll Joel and a guy we called Mark Mead. The whole cast of the movie showed up. Never knew this guy (Mark Mead) but everyone always talked about him.

Here’s the best part we shot a multiple camera video of it all. With the grace of the gods it will be available soon. Special thanks to Russ Lunn for the master shots of the show. What Can I say? If you were alive and at Scorgies in 1982 and you were at the show last night you would understand my feelings.

Taken the day before the show; little did Duane know the lighting challenges before him! Regardless of the difficulties, Duane pulled it off and did a great job!

    I had an awesome evening,I wish my memory was better,its
    embarrising to both parties when you can’t remember who certain people are! The bands were great the crowd was fun!
    Personally I think the Scorgie Reunion should be an annual event.What do you think?

    I can only describe the evening as being similar to a “Gigantic Orgasm”. And who wouldn’t want to do that again?

    Scorgie’s reunion once a year…what a great idea…now the people who only go out once a year will have something to do in ’09!
