Before there was was a band named FireHouse, there was this group of ‘band guys’ hanging around in the Charlotte area, writing original songs, rehearsing, networking the region, going to concerts, recording demos, making friends, gigging at area clubs, and other live shows. Then there were label showcases, getting signed to a major label for albums, tours, arena concerts, with all theR & R fantasies of fame and fortune.
