Mike and I were musician’s playing Bass guitar with Sandy Renda. I took over when Mike left. Him and my Dad were in the Veterans home together, and their rooms were across from each other. Mike and I had some great memories about being in the band. May he Rest In Peace now.

Hello Craig. This is Ken Mike's younger brother. I remember Sandy from High school but don't believe we ever met. I went to see Mike numerous times but he never mentioned your dad. If you're still in touch with Sandy tell him I said hello but then again he may not remember me. Thank you for the kind words.
