Local group to rock at FrankfordStyle (1988?)
by Harry L. Swiderski
The program will be given at the Frankford Memorial United Methodist Church, Oxford Avenue and Dire Street, just a stone's throw from his home.
Other members of the group are Bob Genua of Holme Circle on lead
guitar, Keith Brogan of Wissinoming on bass guitar, Al Kleinschmidt of
Roxboro on keyboards and Dan Farnan of Holmesburg on drums. Gregg plays
the rhythm guitar and is the group's songwriter and arranger. All are
gainfully employed in different careers during the day.
"We perform power-pop, a rock beat with a pop edge," he explained. "We do half original music and halt rock and roll from the 60s and 70s."
Gregg wrote the original music which includes "Turn On The Fire," "You Need Tonight" and "Torture," all of which enjoy success among the group's fans in the Delaware Valley. The Resistors were one of the last rock groups to play Grendel's Lair before the well-known South Street nitery closed. The group is a regular at Empire Rock Club on the Boulevard and will appear there again Sept. 4.
"Unfortunately. there are too few places where original rock is totally welcomed," Gregg said.
The group has played music before capacity crowds at J.C. Dobbs on South Street, Khyber Pass at Second and Chestnut Streets and Gilhooley's on Bustleton Ave. Gregg says there are more than 150 names of avid Resistors' fans on the mailing list and he hopes to expand this group following his FrankfordStyle appearance Aug. 5.
