Midwestern favorite

In 1979, Off Broadway nipped at the heels of fellow, midwestern power pop sensations Cheap Trick. Unable to eclipse Rick Nielsen and company, they setteled in comfortably with a few domestic top 40 hits, Full Moon and Stay In Time.

Off Broadway - Live at Fitzgerald's

Simply stated - Off Broadway is the best Power Pop band to emerge from the great Chicago music scene of the late 70's/early 80's. Cheap Trick may have attained more notoriety and international acclaim, but for some more prudent management OB could well have seen similar support. Cliff Johnson's hook-laden songs are well crafted and the twin guitar attack of Rob Johnson and John Ivan are spectacular, not to mention drummer Kenny Harck - best right foot in the business. This later edition of the band reunites Cliff's long-time pal and former PEZBAND bandmate Mimi Betinis replacing Ivan on 2nd guitar. Check out Cliff's new CD "Little Crimes", set to be released this Spring...you won't be disappointed.

They didn't rock quite as hard and vocalist Cliff Johnson had nowhere near the style and range that Robin Zander did (then again, how many vocalists do?), but they wrote...
