Related One thought on “Kool and The Gang Theme Song: Social Security Band Los Angeles, CA” The Social Band members are still all alive and living in different places around the world. Ron Knight was the lead singer, Skip Spiro on trumpet, Mike Morera on Tenor Sax, Bob Barboza on Bass, Steve Lawrence on Drums and Tony Pretzello on Guitar. Skip, Bob and Tony are still playing in Southern California. Ron Knight still performs in Las Vegas and Australia and Steve Lawrence is a drum instructor at the college level. This is the band that almost made it to Woodstock. Bob Barboza helped to form this band after he returned from Vietnam. He missed playing at Woodstock and the band Sweetwater played and produced an album. Bob had to sit in the war zone. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
