It seems like my cousin introduced me to these guys when I was barely out of high school. Found a full show from 1985, well worth a listen for some very tasty playing:

Nice music! I like to see musicians at work that act like they're enjoying themselves. Too many are very sullen and angry looking. These guys play very well too. One of the best things about this forum is the variety of music I've been introduced to.

Since this show was filmed almost 30 years ago, I'm left wondering what these guys are doing now?

And just what guitar is that dude playing? Nice lookin' thing!

From the shape I assumed it was some kind of Yammy, could be wrong.

I found this wiki entry with more recent goings on:

They seem to be doing alright, don't they?

Some of their later music got too close to easy listening for me and I veered off listening to them for a while. But they are capable of some awesome moments, actually while I was listening to this live show I thought of Dream Theater in another musical context.
