1978 Helix & Styx in Halifax at Zapatas
Early in our career when we were still playing covers in the bars, we were big Styx fans. On our first Maritime tour of Eastern Canada we were playing at Zapatas on Citadel Hill. We used to end off our first set with Suite Madame Blue. Styx was in town and ironically eating at the adjoining restaurant next door, which was only separated from the room we were playing in by the kitchen. Upon hearing their song being played, the members of the band walked through the kitchen and watched us play the song through the little round window in the kitchen door. The owner got pissed off ‘cos they were in the kitchen and kicked them out! This is the picture we took we the band outside in front of the club.
