A Rock-N-Rollin’ Mystery

Sometime in Watertown, New York, this band rocked the stage for the troops. From the looks of the band members, visors, sleeveless shirts and Nike shoes were big. That might help narrow down a decade or two. The electric guitar has a unique paint job; maybe you’ve seen it before? Perhaps you own a similar shirt in your closet? Help us put a name to this band.
