Additional info:

Local band. They were the 1st band to perform.

“An instrumental local band was made up of puertoricans & 2 americans living in P.R. layed instrumentals, mix of jazz, blues & rock. The guys were myself [Gonchi Sifre], Fernando Rosado on Bass, Brian Cuomo on electric piano, Carl Freidman on Harmonica & Violin, and maybe Juan Melendez on sax & flute”.
– Gonchi Sifre, drummer of Rubber Band


“My recollection (I was stoned & the heat!) was that they put most of the local bands on first. I remember we came on about 12 noon and it was so hot that when i touched the rim of one of my drums it hurt! people as far as the eye could see!”
– Gonchi Sifre, drummer of Rubber Band
