“(Nippertown.com - Blotto Records Reunion Show 07/17/2011 - Music Haven Stage, Central Park, Schenectady, NY) - The Penny Knight Band moved up into the headlining slot without a problem, kicking off their set with a tribute to the ailing Broadway Blotto as Knight wailed through a muscular rendition of his “Jump Start My Heart.” Bassist Tony Jones and guitarist Richard Parks – the other original members of the band and the main songwriters – kept the rockin’ hard and heavy. They even debuted a brand new song by guitarist Bob Boyer. And, yes, although Knight spent most of the show up front at the microphone, she did slide behind the drums for a rave-up finale on “Blue Angel.””
