ZEPHYR (Tommy's first band) reunited for these shows! This included surviving members David Givens (Bass/Song writer), John Faris (Flute, Sax, Keyboards, Song writer), and Robbie Chamberlin (original drummer). David's wife Anna Givens handled vocals. Eddie Turner (Zephyr's later guitarist), Ralph Patlin (last year's Tribute guitarist) and Jock Bartley played guitar. To read an excellent history of Zephyr, click HERE.

John Tesar (friend and co-writer with Tommy) was an extra special guest.

Zephyr headlined (played last) on Friday, but opened for Glenn Hughes on Saturday. Although Friday's performance by Zephyr was terrific, they blew even themselves away on Saturday night! They wanted to show the die-hard audience that their souls were rock-and- roll just like Glenn Hughes! They were amazing, with a great psychedelic three-projector visual show going on behind the musicians - just like they did back in the '60's and '70's!

Glenn Hughes, who headlined this year, worked together on Deep Purple's Come Taste The Band . Glenn's voice is better than ever, and he's got a new album called Addiction.

Last year (1996) was fun (see the 1996 Tribute Concerts review), but "This Time Around" was MONUMENTAL!
