THE ROOMATES: RECKLESS ROMANCE AND REUNIONS
Guest Post From the Modfather Myspace Blog:
2 of the hottest Motor City acts in the early 1980s were Natasha, fronted by Sarana VerLin and The Roomates fronted by Beaux Mitchell. Both of these ladies won numerous music awards, sold many records, drew huge audiences and carried the torch of Detroit Rock City admirably when they toured...
On Saturday, February 13th, we are turning back the clock for a very special event. At Paychecks there will be a long overdue reunion of ...
Paula Messner, original axe player for the Roomates will be on hand to make it a bonifide reunion. Paula's also well known for her post-Roomates projects such as the Motor City Dolls and The Candy Band.
I am more than excited-I am totally giddy, because I get to open for these Detroit legends and, if I behave, I even get to fill the keyboard spot with the Roomates.
This is extra special shindig for me, because over the past few years both Beaux and Sarana have been very encouraging and supportive of my own attempt to "rise from the ashes". They have even came into the studio and lent their considerable talents to some of my efforts. To say I love them both would be an understatement ...
To say I'm not proud to be part of this show would be a lie... modfather

I am at loss for words...The Roomates Reunion proved to be a true reunion, wall to wall of old friends mingling with the new ones. Every where I looked people were laughing, hugging and catching up on years gone by. That's what it's all about! The Modfather got things rolling and the crowd was more than pleased with their mod set.I had a blast singing with The Roomates along with the other band mates: Paula Messner, Maggie McCabe, Chris Jones (Bullethead), The Modfather, Clyde Varney, and Dan Allen. DoLL DoLL even made a special appearance by the sets end. Then the night got better when Natasha hit the stage *grins* that Sarana VerLin is one of the most talented women in Detroit! I had the honor of singing a few tunes side by side with her, what more could a girl want? Then to top it off, The Earworms looked and sounded like a pop record...very catchy and very nice eye-candy! And last but surely not least came TREATMENT BOUND...*whew* they always rev the crowd up into a frenzy..The night was magical to say the least! Thank You to all who made this a rockin night of fun and music!!!
So glad the show was such a fantastic success! I was unfortunately stuck in Ann Arbor with transportation issues. Thanks for letting my readers know how it went. Any video of it Beaux?
The Roomates are thankful that Dan Boyd had his three camera crew out at Paychecks to video the reunion. He's is editing it as we speak!
Dan does really nice work, sorry I had to miss the reunion Beaux hope to meet you this spring with Machinegun and maybe Deniz Tek too
"I will look forward to meeting you this spring along with Machinegun and Deniz Tek too! Maybe we can meet for some sweet tea and a bite to eat.Spring is right around the corner ya know... Have a good day.
