Waiting for the Bus is an archival recording that recreates and reflects the ambience, atmosphere and spirit of the turbulent era of social unrest, rebellion and political turmoil that existed in the early 1970s when the band members were incarcerated inmates on the sixth floor of Sproul Hall, a dormitory residence at UCLA. Most of the songs that comprise the original repertoire of the Molay Band were composed between 1971 and 1974. These songs, filled with youthful exuberance, were played live for frat parties, beer bars, biker gatherings, and other musical events.
Members of the Molay Band as featured on this recording are: James Domine, lead guitar and vocals, Dan Carlson, rhythm guitar and vocals, Hank Dutton, bass, J.D. Ducal, keyboards and Larry Martinez, drums.
Waiting for the Bus is dedicated to the memory of Wayne Baron, who served as road manager, procurement agent and spiritual advisor from 1971 for the band until he merged with the universe in 1981. R.I.P.
"Only a dream fills the void of their space, ashes of destiny lay in their place."
