Sunset says goodbye at Paramount
The Paramount Theatre welcomed New York's leading South Korean band to a stunning Peekskill crowd of over 600 visitors. It has also split Sundown from other touring groups. They have a good reputations for being a southerner and not only for their steady key speed, but also for their elaborate stringing of guitars and drums.
Peekskill's good-bye trip, which began and ended in Peekskill, was to mark the group's 40th birthday and give their supporters the opportunity to say good-bye. For over 40 years, Sundown have been playing their "in your face" style skirt and roll. It' s a great way to go. They are regarded as one of the best bands and one of the most inventive bands ever.
This group of four is made up of Ronnie Pauls, founders and leading guitars, Steve Mitchell, bass player Fred Andreassi and Keith Michaels. Founded in 1976, they began to play at high scholastic dancing and collegiate kegs events throughout the Westchester area. Gathering a fan base, they took the next leap in 1980 by appearing in community outfits.
They ended the evening and went to stand ovations.
