Another Entertainment Showcase in the books! Great bands, great people, and believe it or not, great chicken ceasar wraps. Which towns will we be playing in this Summer? Stay tuned to find out.

Additionally, 1974 would like to welcome John Dotson to the band as our new bassist.

No no no no, Dotson, not Dodgson.

John brings an impressive resume to 1974, having played in groups like Big Floppy Disk, Joey Batts and Them, High Adventure, and Whatsoever. We're fortunate enough to have him suit up as a member of Squad 74!
