"No one had ever heard of us before that," he said. The concert lineup included Bob Thompson, The Carpenter Ants and the VooDoo Katz.
"We got lucky that they liked us - and we got asked to play for this," Spence said.
Spence is the primary singer, a role he's taken seriously.
"I'm not a wonderful singer by any stretch of the imagination, but I've learned to be the best singer I've ever been with this band," he said. "A band is only as strong as its weakest link and it wasn't going to be my singing that took us back."
