Live Bait 1991-1994

     Reminiscing recently about the past, brought about an idea I've wanted to get down on paper for a long time; before I forget completely. My high school rock band played cover after cover of popular tunes at the time. Through the years, there were a few incarnations of the band, but the core 3 or 4 of us were there from the beginning to the end. We played parties, school functions and even dances for various junior high schools. Here is a list of almost all of the songs we played at these shows at one time or another.

Jealous Again
