Storm

Storm hit Boston in August 1977, the same week that Elvis went into hiding. The band played a variety of styles, from classic rock and blues, through funk and jazz, to their signature "space-rock-fusion" which was especially popular with their MIT fans.

Storm released a single in 1980, "Keep on Foolin'" b/w "Havin' a Party," produced by Josiah Spaulding, jr. who also produced Robert Ellis Orrall and is now Director of the Wang Center. There was also The Notorious Uncle Wack, who often appeared on-stage at Storm gigs.
