*Newspaper Ad shows the Midnight Shift on the bill for March 8. Later guitarist Bob Lelli:
     "A note about the "Midnight Shift/Grande Card". The first time Thomas Blood played at the Grande as a warm-up for Jeff Beck w/Rod Stewart, Russ Gibb had forgot the new band's name (Thomas Blood), but he knew that three of them had recently left the semi-successful local band - Midnight Shift - from Swingin' Time TV fame and a couple of 45"s - so he substituted that name. Later Grande gigs were with Savoy Brown and others, but they never made it onto a Grande Card..."
