    After just 2 major label releases, The Refreshments parted ways, leaving me wanting more from this country/rock/calypso band.

    The guitar player just smokes. Not like Ed, but he's got his own style. He plays these blues riffs. Tunes have intros and outros and solos.

    I've never met anyone else on the net who loves these guys like I do. Has anyone ever heard of 'em?????????

    I like the finger sandwiches, but I could do without the marshmallow Jello mold.

    Jimmy........I am a HUGE Refreshments fan.
    They were an unbelievable band. Too bad they broke up. Luckily, living here in Phoenix, I got to see them live quite a bit before and after they were a national act.

    Dude, have you checked out the lead singer's new band "The Peacemakers"? The drummer from the Refreshments is in it too along with a member of the Gin Blossoms on guitar.
    Check them out.

    YES!!!!! Another fan. I was starting to think that this band only existed in my dreams.

    I have checked out some the Peacemakers website.

    I also went onto Napster and started to download a tune. I was new to Napster and wasn't sure I wasn't doing it right. I was on my company's computer, so I opted to bag the download and delete the Napster stuff, not before I realized that about 16 seconds of the tune had dowloaded. Souded like the singer from the Refreshments.

    I love the guitar player from the Refreshments. I dowloaded a tune from him and his new band. The old "licks" are still there for me, but the singer sounded more like Paul Stanley then I would care to admit. But the tune still embraced those certain qualites that made up the band I loved.

    It truly does sadden me to think there will be no more tunes about Mexico and beer? Let me check out the website you posted and I'll get back to you. We "Refreshment Fanatics" gotta stay together, "down together"

    OK,

    I just went to CDNOW.com and ordered their CD. In a couple of days, I'll be singing of Senoritas and beer.
