Lady T from the Easton-based band, Lucky Seven:
"It's one of the best bands I've been with. There's a lot of energy, we do a lot of old and new songs and just being with the guys in the band we got a lot of energy with the people helping us. My favorite song to sing is 'At Last,' by Etta James."
The sixties bring back a time of my youth. A lot of stuff was happening, like the Viet Nam war and love, peace, and rock 'n' roll. I grew up in South Philadelphia and the biggest memory that comes back to me was seeing a lot of groups coming up. Every Sunday, they had different acts. Santana showed up a few times, the Stones actually showed up one time. We'd go to a place called the Electric Factory, and we saw the Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Mama Cass. The music today cannot compare to the music that was.
"Easton is a very quiet and historic city to me, because there's all sorts of old buildings. This monument here in Centre Square is unique in how it's built and what it represents, you know, the soldiers of yesterday who fought for this country to gain us freedom. It reminds me, when I see it, I think about what this country is going through now and the police things that they're doing in other countries to make those people safe so we can be safe here in the United States. I commend our soldiers for it, what they go through, you know. Some have not come back."
