Hey Ava-sure wish we had some old Mere Bull footage-Brings back a lot of great memories :)

That was some of the most fun I have ever had playing music. That had to be the coolest set list I have ever played from. I mean really, who does a set like that...um, nobody! Don't really miss the smokey room though.

Doug Sanborn is introducing the band. He was an Italian Street Fair volunteer and a sound engineer for Skyline Drive.

I so miss playing in that band. I don't think that I can ever hear a Chicago tune and not be transported back to Club Mere Bulles.

Nice solos Scott and Scott!

I can see why you miss this.

I don't mind telling anybody that Nobody's Business played a huge role as an inspiration for today's Skyline Drive. That was the first band I saw when I moved to Nashville in '94 (at Club Mere Bulles, of course), and I was totally blown away. Now, if I could just play like Eddy and/or sing like Gary!

Mrs. Miller was jammin'! lol But wow, 1988, I wasn't even thought of lol. This is a great video. I envy you guys talents. That was beyond any great adjective you could think of. Great job. You

Ava It was great seeing the video of Nobody's Business. The short amount of time I played gigs with the band were definately memorable. My son Joseph was in a stroller at the concert in Centenial Park, I believe he was 1 1/2 years old. He now plays trumpet and likes Chicago and other horns bands so I was proud to show him the video. Thanks for posting the video!- Bob Chandler
