is with heavy hearts that we announce that Tyme Band
had its final show at King's in Mountaintop on December
First we want to say that the band is parting on good
terms. Tom, Rick, Stephen and J.D. will always be one
family. We don't know what the future holds for each
of us, because music is, and always will be a part of
our life. We felt we would like to bow out gracefully
while we are still one of the top classic rock bands
in the valley.
During our tyme together, before, during and after every
show we always loved playing for our "Tyme Travelers."
There were some bad nights, sometimes our amps broke,
sometimes our voices went south and medical issues were
in the background, but we were still the classic rock
band that you all wanted to hear.
It is important to understand that for Tyme Band, the
opinion on whether or not it is in fact tyme to give
up doesn't come from any one faction, but from all of
the years we have been doing this.
In total, we have over 100 years of playing in various
bands. Tom, Rick and J.D. have been doing this since
the 60's and beyond.
Let us take you back awhile and tell you how Tyme Band
Tyme Band was together from 1979 to 1988 as a top 40
band and played all the local venues and bazaars. The
band parted ways until 2008 when our Sound/Light man
Tony, got in touch through email and suggested we have
a reunion. We met at a local pig roast in Mountaintop,
talked about old tymes, exchanged pictures, and had
a very good "family tyme" like we never parted.
We decided we would then get together every year for
a "reunion" of sorts and we did in 2009 when
we all attended another function together. It was then
that we decided to form Tyme Band again.
We had been rehearsing about 7 months before our first
show at the Nanticoke Music Fest in June of 2010 and
the rest is history.
We first want to thank the most important people in
our lives, our wives Theresa, Ann, Heide and April for
supporting us. We love you all very much.
To Rob Heck and John Stone who have been our official
roadies over the years and for a time
Art Lucarino .Thanks guys, without you we would
have given up long ago ..Just kidding!!
And the most important people -- our "Tyme Travelers"
who have been with us since day one Following us
wherever we played, texting messages back to us, reserving
tables, albeit sometimes not getting any, cause it was
so crowded. You folks are the best and we will be forever
grateful to all of you!
Some folks consider themselves as fans of Tyme Band.
We consider all of you "family" not only fans.
Once again, thank you to all involved with Tyme Band
for the past 7 years and from 1979 to 1988. We have
an endless thankfulness for all of you who made this
band what it is today. So from the bottom of our hearts
THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU! Unfortunately we will not be
booking anymore shows after this last show at King's.
In closing, we want to thank every Tyme Traveler, family,
friends and fans from the bottom of our hearts for such
great memories. It has been a great TYME.!! We will
never forget a face or a feeling, and that is what we
have left from all of you.
As for the guys in the band and what will come next Stay
