Gunthers Bus was formed in late 1967. We practiced at the at the Auditorium Theater on Main St in Rochester. I don’t remember the practice being more than a few weeks before we had our first night out at Duffy’s Hotel which was in the triangular building at the corner of St. Paul, Bittner St and the ramps to the inner loop. The first night of opening week we pulled up in Gunthers actual bus – where the name Gunthers Bus came from. At that time the band included myself on organ, Art Foti, Jerry Cummings, Tom Bittle and Joe Dasheneau. I was only with them a couple months and then left when I got the offer to join The Fabulous Furys.
