Still working on that hot first release.



In 1964 millions of American teenagers and there stunned parents tuned into the Ed Sullivan Show to watch the Beatles. That was the start of the so called British invasion.

Teenage boys all wanted to play the guitar or drums and be just like those bands. And a group of friends from the west side of South Bend were no different. Faded memories make if difficult to remember just how the idea came up for them to form a band. But it only makes sense that their friendship was the catalyst for it. The band originally formed around late 1965 or early 1966 and went on to be a very successful local group winning several “battle of the bands” and rocking the night away for teenagers and many young couples at their wedding reception.

Of course many years have passed and the members lives all went in different directions but the group reunited in the summer of 2004 to play a few songs as a lark for their former manager's wedding and the bug struck again. At first everyone was a bit hesitant but after several SeSSions the juices of playing rock and roll and hanging with old friends was back in their blood. The original group added new additions: Jessica Smith (vocals), Greg Shafer (keys, vocals) and Augie Freda (lead guitar). Today the group, known as the 3rd SeSSion, plays the widest variety of music ranging from classic rock to pop to alternative and recent hits.

As it was in the old days the band remains a party band. They love to get people up dancing or just clapping and singing along. So if you get the chance come join them when they are gigging and have a ball.
