ORION was the band that really started it all for many of us.
originally with Brian Leggiere on drums, then later and right up until the end, Roger Schnur, the band also consisted
of CJ Truitt on vocals, John Curtin on bass, Jeff Kalmar on guitar, and Joel Pirard on keys. More 'old' pics to follow,
but yesterday, 7-26-2009, at approx 3PM ORION performed together with both drummers for the first time since 1980, for
a private affair.
7-26-2011 NEW WINDSOR- ORION HAD THEIR FIRST 'REAL' REUNION on Saturday, July 23, when we played about 10 of our own
tunes together for the first time in more than 30 years!
In 2009, we had jammed together, but ironically enough, did NOT play any ORION tunes at that time. We rectified that
this time! Also on had was MORDUS bassist ERIC OBERMAN, and JDA PROJECT's singer-keyboardist DON PITZ, and former AVALON-USA
drummer and current JESTER'S PROMENADE drummer BRUCE HENNINGER.
