-…at last-
By Bob Silvestri

In conjunction with their recent induction into The Buffalo Music Hall of Fame, Joyryde- Johnna Scime (vocals), Mike Lacki (keyboards, vocals, harmonica) Dick Bauerle (guitars, vocals) Dennis Parry(bass) and Al Hury (drums), have released a CD titled …at last. Combining a good mix of original and cover songs the band gets a chance to show off their musical versatility. Soft rock favorites “New York State Of Mind” and “Wildflower” and dance favorites “Since You Been Gone” and “I Will Survive” are some of the cover songs on the CD.  Mike Lacki contributes the rock and roll  roadhouse anthem “White Lightning” and “’Careful What You Wish For ‘Cause It Might Come True” while Dick Bauerle wrote the tracks “The Knoll” a first class guitar driven rocker and “(Give Me An) Old Song”. Highlight of the disc is the Harry Warren penned “At Last” which gives Johnna Scime a chance to really stretch out vocally on this soulful jazz standard. The Hitman Horns add splendid back up on this as well. The CD closes with another Harry Warren standard “Shuffle Of To Buffalo” with an arrangement by Mike Lacki.
