Lex Byers and Vegas


Lex Byers and Vegas was an 8 piece group consisting of a lead vocalist, guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, sax, trombone, and trumpet. Vegas performed many of the great sings by Chicago, BS & T, Lighthouse. The group, though never achieving the top billing status of the original Vegas,  was  one of the most polished bands in all respects. The music was tight, and the audience could see the group thoroughly enjoyed themselves while performing. If you closed your eyes, you would think you were at a Blood Sweat and Tears concert. The group consisted of Lex Byers on vocals, myself on Guitar, Rich Fiordeliso on Keys, John Pascarella on Drums, Gary Terwilliger on Bass, Rick Austin on Sax, Doc Davis on Trombone, and Jimmy Squirrell on Trumpet

 Fredonia Recordings  were recorded at Fredonia College as a final Exam for a recording student.

Musicians:  Lou Ricigliano, Randy Wolf, Rich Fiordeliso, Lex Byers, Rick Austin, Steve Kotzin, Mack Kendrick
