“Rochester's own "Rock 'n Blues Band", Code 5 has been under the radar of late, but bass guitar player Scott Meli told us that they've been working on some new songs and trying to finish some of their own music. Next Friday, June 20th, they'll be at the one, the only, One Restaurant and Lounge on the first night of the Jazz Fest, which also just happens to be the Summer's Eve. We wonder- is it possible that we might hear that old time great "Summertime"? Scott said Bob, Carl, Johnny and LJ are all looking forward to seeing their family and friends on the deck on Friday night.”

Q: Morgan -you asked about the Fedora, and I responded to the recent picture that was posted. After thinking about it, I realized you might have been talking about the one in the Video.
A: The hat Carl is wearing in "The Shadowman" video is a Carlos Santana hat called "The Healer". The band has a stitching similar to an electrcardiagram graph, topped off with a pin on the side in the shape of a heart. You can look it up on-line. It's a great hat.
