The Feromones – “Timeless Dance”

“John Scoggins and Tim Bruns were performing at a party I was attending one night. They came in set up a small keyboard casio something, Tim whips out an acoustic guitar and they proceed to perform these tunes they wrote, John on the lyrics and Tim the music. I was really impressed with the tunes they were playing.”
“They had a great place to practice at the Lahaina Civic Center which is a small amphitheater in a beautiful location of Lahaina only an hour and a half away from where I live, none the less I drove for a year once a week to learn their music, do the CD, and we played a half dozen gigs on Lahaina side. It was a great time.” – Jimmy C
