The Band That Time Forgot
The Band That Time Forgot 1985 and has maintained the same members since 1985: Peter “Head West” Hoffman on Guitar, Larry “Sonny California” Luddecke on keyboards, Richard “Rainbow” Gates on bass, and Tim “Stash” Jackson on drums. Their impeccable renditions of lesser-known songs from the late 1960s won them an early “Best of Boston” Award. Their mantra is: “We play all original songs. We just didn’t write them”. They have worked together in various incarnations and individually with the likes of John Hammond, Robin Lane and the Chartbusters, Willie Nile, Suzanne Vega, Dennis Brennan, LaVern Baker, Ellis Paul, Tom Rush, Vance Gilbert, Vas Deferens, Chuck McDermott, and many more. Their many years together have only increased the fun and skill with which they deliver the quirky musical chestnuts that make up their substantial playlist.
