August 6th, 1969 in Carbondale, Illinois, Head East played their first live concert. And coming up this August 6th, 2018, will be Head East's forty-ninth anniversary of the night they opened at The Golden Gauntlet. The band is just as exciting and energetic as ever. Hope all fans pull out Flat As A Pancake and party like it's 1969. World-class band and musicians, but even better they're world-class guys. Rock On!!!

Have loved the band since the very beginning. My most touching song as far as my personal life is Ticket Back To Georgia.

If anybody from Ballwin, Manchester, or Ellisville is reading this, I wish I could be there Friday for "Ballwin Days" but there's just too much to do and take care of right now for me in Texas. I really enjoyed the time we lived in that area, and I hope everybody has a great time with the band and the music!

I was fortunate enough to attend the show at old Shawnee days on Saturday June 2nd. Awesome show!! I'd like to thank you guys for making this wheelchair bound old classic rocker for what shall be a very limited time on this earth enjoy some great memories with your music. I happened to be in front of the stage and even being in my power chair I was able to have Greg Manahan's pick land in my lap! Thanks again guys for the awesome music and show! Grateful for it all!

Congratulations to the Moody Blues and Bon Jovi for their enshrinement in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. However these four bands have not made the hall, with some of the best resumes in Rock & Roll history along with undeniable front line musicians and vocals second to none. Here are 4 bands that have been left off, Head-East (brought more fans out off their butts and quickly put on their dancing shoes!), where's REO, STYX, and Kansas. All lovers of Rock should right this wrong. Thanks guys for over 40 years of great Rock "N" Roll. It's all about the music, the talent and the fun. Cleveland Wake-up and immortalize these 4 bands in 2019.

I love the song, "Never Been Any Reason" and didn't really know who sang it till now. Radio stations fail to announce what songs they play and when I heard this the other day I just keep singing it in my head. Play On!

I have always loved Head East ever since I heard the 1979 Live! Double Album. Which I still have the vinyl and still listen to. I had it on 8 track, cassette and I have 2 copies on CD. I went down the road today, rocking - Never Been Any Reason, shutting down the young punks with their c'rap music like they were on toy pianos. You're in my heart and in my soul, I am taking that album with me when I go. Saint Peter better be a fan cuz it ain't gonna be quiet. It isn't heaven if I can't "Head East".

The magnificent lead guitarist Glen Bridger opens Say Yeah, with one of rock's all-time best guitar openings. His guitar sings!!!

Hey guys, just wanted to stop bye and check out your upcoming tour schedule for 2018 and see if you might by chance be coming around my neck of the woods in the Northwest. I'm a Retired Navy "Wisco cheesehead" transplant to the Great Northwest who got a chance to see you guys in Lewiston, ID a few years back and you guys rocked da Place down FULLY !! I always cherish your Great Midwest Rock sound and if you happen to HEAD WEST to say around Yakima for the county fair or Boise for a fair I will be sure to get my gang to road trip ASAP. In the meantime, "Get up and Enjoy Yourselves " (awesome tune) and continue to stay true to yourselves/family and you will always prosper while rock n' roll lives on!!

Saw you guys the first time at Barnhill Arena in Fayetteville, AR in 79 or 80. Again at Featherfest in Springdale, AR in 04 or 05. See y'all at JQH if money allows. Head East should be the headliners. Thanks for the memories and Keep Rockin !

Thanks for all the memories, you guys were actually responsible for my friend and I meeting our first husbands. It was at a show in Corpus Christi,TX at a place on Staples St.- can't remember the name. Must have been 1982.

Darren Walker the great lead vocalist of Head-East is pure energy when he performs Mama Let Him Play. Hope every Head East fan gets to see the band live!

We met at a Head East concert 40 years ago. 36 years ago we were married. If not for the band's Hastings, NE show our lives would be totally different. I wouldn't change a day. 1 girl, 1 boy, 4 grandchildren (so far) and hopefully more happy years to come. We celebrated our 25th Anniversary at The Buffalo Rose in Golden, CO at a Head East show with old friends 11 years ago New Years Eve. Thanks to those who changed and touched lives thru music.

I first saw the band at the Silver Dollar Saloon in Lansing, Michigan. I bought 2 copies of "Flat as a Pancake" on the Pyramid label. The guys autographed one copy for me. I loved listening to Roger on the keyboards, and remember sharing a couple of Beck's beers with him in the break room.

I remember when Head East first became popular with their first album. That album was a pretty big deal. When the second album came out I was just as impressed with it as I was the first. I've been a fan ever since!

I have loved your music for many years. Thanks to Esmeralda for arranging for me to meet you guys a few months back.

Kansas City, MO - October 31, 2017

Wow. 1976 was quite a year, right? Everyone that gypped classes in High School did so with "Never Been Any Reason" blasting from our car stereos. I haven't even thought of this band for 30 years or so. An eBay seller listed his camera and wrote of taking photos at a Head East concert way back when... Glad to hear you are still rockin' in the free world!

Michael Owens
