About:

Played at Monday's Blues, Various Purdue Venues, West Lafayette, Lafayette, Red Dog Bloomingon, Slater Center

The music on this site was recored LIVE at the Redog Saloon in Bloomington Indiana, August 1975.  It was transferred to a C120 cassette in 1978 and later edited and upload to this site. Definately some dropouts, feedback and EQ problems.  Certainly a fun time.

  • WOW! awesome! Bandanna at Monday Blues. I've wanted to hear their music for so long. Tried the web before but couldn't find anything about them. They put Monday blues on the map in Lafayette. Who would ever think I'd be sitting on my back porch listening to them? The only thing I can say is MORE MORE. Thank you whoever put these songs on the web. Tom

  • Dont' remember the thing from Dave and Phil Swinford but remember all these people with warm thoughts. I still have one of the original Bandanna (notice the correct spelling) print logo's that Frederick Lamar Jones did for the band and have it framed and placed at the top of my stairwell at home. It was an amazeing time with some interesting transitions from accoustic to electric; unfortunatley my best cassette from the electric days with Mike Krewitsky on keys and Jeff Grogg on percussion wore out so I can't pass on that part of the band. Sad but an incredable progression that many more people got to experience at many places in the midwest and all the way out west. Great times were had by all involved. But then really, drink some and piss some out! Ha!

  • Such a time of love and sadness. Bandana was the joy in each day. I miss your creative spirit John. This is so awesome. Smiling!

  • Look at all that hair! This was a fun listen for me. Where was "Mayan Haze" or was that LowSpark or some other rendition. I have always had great respect for people who could get up in front of a crowd and entertain. Especially young people. You guys had a nice confidence. I wish I could zoom in on that little group of people off to the side of the stage.

    Quick story about Keith Jolly.

    This was told to me by my brother, David, so I guess it is true. Some time after 1975, David was in the bar/club in Elwood Indiana. Dave's Downtown Supper Club I believe. I guess he entered while the "band" was on a break. He is in the men's room and he hears this guy at the urinal "Drink a beer-Piss a beer" The voice sounded familiar. It was Keith. I guess he was fronting the band that had the gig that evening.

    Thanks for sharing time with me at Harrison Street and at Waldon, Hank. Also working the Flying Gable Brothers construction. Thanks for sharing your home with me, John, those last few months of my Purdue tenure. Stay well and I hope you have enjoyed your day jobs. Phil Swinford

  • This is a total hoot! Thanks very much for sending and for including my name in the credits!? The sound man should have been shot...wait a second that was me.
    These recordings bring a flood of memories; most of which were dim or completely dark. The pictures were icing on the cake.

    Thanks again.

  • Thanks for this link. Cool to see this note from John. Bill Reetz visited this weekend and we reminisced a good bit. Bandanna still one of our favorite bands of all time. We have always played "Tryin to get to you" together, and Bill does a wonderful solo version of Evelyn.. Brought back some good memories of the old days.

  • Hankster! Thanks for posting those. I remember having a good time playing at the Red Dog and also the Time Out in Bloomington. Bloomington always had more street hippies and pretty girls than Lafayette. Not too shabby for a cheap tape cassette recording. That's the only recording of the acoustic Bandana I've heard, thanks for sharing!
    by John Baker on Jul 25, 2010
  • Fixed the names.
    Lamar, Bill Reetz(?), and Bob Gassel also discovered and had a blast from the past.
