John “JB” Bell (guitar, vocals), Jimmy Herring (guitar), Dave Schools (bass, vocals), Domingo “Sunny” Ortiz (percussion), Duane Trucks (drums), and John “JoJo” Hermann (keyboards, vocals) have been returning to Wilmington the last two years since helping open downtown’s Riverfront Park venue in 2021.
The group has had a long-standing relationship with the Port City, often playing local clubs in the early ’90s and returning in the mid-aughts for Azalea Festival shows.
“We spent many nights at the Mad Monk,” Ortiz told PCD in a 2021 interview, adding they continued coming back frequently through the ’90s, to both the Monk and Trask Coliseum. “We had a great time.”
