#8 Rockit's Famous Pizza: Rockit's Famous Musicians or (The Bands that Made the Pizza Wheel Spin!)

"Oh Kevin, honey this is Bill. His band is playing next door at the Bluebird tonight!"



My Mom greeted me as I walked into the restaurant one Tuesday night. It was my night off from Rockit's and I was planning on popping over to the Bluebird. First, I wanted to see how business was. Even when I was off work, I was never really off work. It was the early/mid Nineties by this time and the business was…
