Band of the day

Its late today (got stuck on the morning shift at work), but the band of the day today is the now defunct Edna's Goldfish, one of the biggest ska bands to come from Long Island. The group was together from 1997 to 2000 and their song Veronica Sawyer managed to bring the band some mainstream recognition. Singer Brian Diaz went on to form The Reunion Show with ex-members of Step Lively and The Lightweights. Trombonist Ian McKenzie continued to play with Catch 22. Bass player Kris Baldwin did some session work for Epic Records and then recorded and played with Action Action. So thats some Long Island ska for you guys =)
