ELIZABETHTON — It is time for another blast from the past in Elizabethton.

The members of the Blue Fox Band will be holding their Fifth Annual Rock Reunion for Hope on Saturday, May 4. The band will be performing all those classics from the late ’60s and early ’70s that the band was so good at playing. The show will once again be at the auditorium of T.A. Dugger Junior High School from 6-8 p.m. The doors open at 5:15.

Band members include Jim Bass on percussion; John Gardiner on drums; Tony Rominger on sax, harmonica and vocals; Andy Houston on keyboards and bass; Barry Corky Jolly on guitar and vocals; Lee Gouge on guitar; and K.D. Forshay on keyboard. The band members were all high schoolers in the ’60s and ’70s and had a large following that still comes out and rocks with the band at the annual concerts.

The price of admission is free, but the band is accepting donations for the Relay for Life to fight cancer. Nearly everyone in the band has either been touched by cancer himself or watched people they love battle with the disease. While the band members look forward to the chance to play the old songs they mastered years ago, they especially enjoy raising money for the American Cancer Society.

The annual Blue Fox concert will once again emphasize the power of the music of that time. It is music that has always done more than just generate memories. From the turbulent times of its creation, the music has always spoken to the generation that performed it and listened to it. For Blue Fox, it still encourages its followers with hope and determination to defeat a terrible disease.
