Witness
« on: October 18, 2017, 08:55:56 PM »
Witness was another local favorite band around the Philadelphia, NJ, Delaware area. The band was formed in 1977, but really started to garner a huge local following playing numerous shows through the 80's and 90's. This band several cover songs by a vast number of different artists, some pretty harder stuff to play at that and did them exceptional. Check them out.

This is a really cool site dedicated to the band and has a lot of info, pics and links.

Best Local Bar band I ever saw was in the early 2000's I know
I saw them a couple times in 2003 and maybe again in 2004.
I believe you were with me on at least one of those occasions.
That band was Last Call and they had 3 Guitarist and they wailed.
They played everything and played it well including Ghost Riders,
and Free Bird. Unfortunately I wasn't able to locate any video of
them.
