Back in 2008, Tom Kohn from the Bop Shop organized the Scorgies Reunion for Friday, November 21st at the German House, 315 Gregory Street.
The idea for this project came about in late 2007/early 2008 from several reminiscences with Danny Deutsch, Stan Merrell, and Don about Scorgies and Rochester’s thriving music scene of the time. It all started with a Jukebox and the rest was history. The Reunion celebrated those days and sought recapture some of the great music that was so integral to the Rochester scene.
The stories that you shared here helped to make some of the most interesting aspects of the Reunion.
Please take the time to read the blog and feel free to contribute your memories. And stop back often; people are adding stories nearly every day.
The Official Scorgies Reunion lineup included: Personal Effects, New Math, and The Press Tones as well as members of the Cliches and the Targets.
Notes from the event
Doors will open at 7pm and the show will be 8-11pm. Get there early; it's a great chance to catch up with old friends, many of whom are coming in from out of town. If you eat downstairs at The Keg, we recommend getting there quite early; in fact, it's best to call for reservations. The bar will be open both upstairs and downstairs and we've assembled some things to see - reminders of the old scene we know you will enjoy. Tickets are $20 in advance and $22 at the door. They are now on sale at The Bop Shop, 274 N. Goodman St., Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way, and The Keg, downstairs from The German House, 315 Gregory St.
