It was October 27, 1972…

I was recently asked if I could restore an old analog 2 track live recording of the group “Powerhouse” that was recorded at the Shamrock Lounge on Bridge Street in Grand Rapids, Michigan on October 27, 1972. While no pictures exist of the night that we know of, this recording preserves that night in all its glory. What a great band! It was billed as “Powerhouse featuring Nancy Westbrook” and included Nancy Westbrook on vocals, Jeff Beavans on bass and vocals, Gerald Williams on drums and vocals, Wilton “Mache” Machem on tenor sax, Tim Hackenberger on trumpet, Dave Diefendorf on trombone, and John “Johnny Mac” McDonald on guitar and vocals.
