Dave Barckow (Singer/Songwriter/Bandleader)

By Mike Fitzpatrick Dave Barckow is without a doubt one of the hardest working guys in rock and roll.

The Republic of Loose

Even were Mick Pyro, Benjamin Loose, Brez, Deco, Orla La and the rest of the Republic of Loose dove-like birds that raced, carried and cooed their way through life, it’d still be nigh on impossible to pigeonhole them into any exact musical species.

Nicole DeCario (Singer).

There’s not a lot that can be said about Nicole DeCario that hasn’t been said before, well, at least by us, see, being in the newspaper business, we do enjoy the occasional morsel of backtalk, chitchat and, well, idle gossip (that’s gossip which doesn’t carry out its chores in case you were wondering).

Allen Gogarty (Singer/Songwriter)

So there we were just hanging around minding our own (and most other peoples’) business, when whom should we happen upon, but local musician Allen Gogarty.
