Poco in concert

Richie Furay

A million thanks to Gary Adkins for sending these photos.  You could tell that Gary was already a professional grade photographer by the quality of these pictures.

This is the band Poco in concert at Cassell Coliseum in 1971.  My roommate had turned me on to these guys only months before they came to play at Virginia Tech.

It was such a great show, the crowd was pumped and rowdy.  At one point the "authorities" stopped the music, turned on the overhead lights, and told the crowd to get off the basketball floor or the show would not go on.  When we returned to our seats the show commenced.  What a great night.

The first album I bought was simply entitled POCO and consisted of band members Rusty Young, Richie Furay, Jim Messina, Timothy B. Schmit, and George Grantham.
