Tricks History 1995

Bye bye Ann. The end of another era for Tricks.
Early in 1995, we got a call from Ann saying that she wanted to go to school full time, she had to be a mom and a wife, and she had a day job - so the band had to go. We spent much of early 1995 working out a new version of Tricks. We decided not to look for a replacement for Ann, but instead we would have Krystal get up and sing lead for a third of the songs. Tricks would be a "Power Trio plus": drummer Steve, Guitarist Rick, and Bassist Tom, with occasional Krystal singing lead. We took the honed down version of Tricks into Steve's basement, and we had to learn almost all new songs. We worked hard to present a variety of songs, from classic rock, county, blues, and hard rock.
