Would that be the same Dennis Dragon formerly of The Surf Punks?

Yes, Dennis was the drummer and resident wise guy in The Surf Punks and he's still bouncing off the walls!! TakeOffs' bass player John Hunt was also in The Surf Punks. Conrad, Bill and I were never in The Surf Punks. Dennis' brother Daryl was the "Captain" in Captain and Tennille their father was Carmen Dragon I'd say a pretty musical family.

Well how cool is that? And John Hunt as well! Yes I knew his brother was Daryl Dragon of Captain & Tennille fame. And I was big fan of The Surf Punks back in the day - still have some of their 45's! Glad to hear Dennis is still involved with music - guess I just have to pick up your new CD now Smile
