A look at one of our shows from the 80's filmed at Shady Lane, with outside scenes from The Old Colony, and London Ale House. Also included, some footage of the Great Stardust Ballroom fire, which happened while we were there in Wildwood.

Witness Prided itself on producing a Great Show every night, however, we did over 2000 shows... OUT-TAKE  ! 
From the 1980's (Sorry about quality) We did this show 1000 times, but this night everything that could go wrong went wrong! (With a big audience in attendance.) It is followed by a song that went right to make up for it! 
...proof that a camera iris is more powerful than 50,000 watts of light and two Super Troupers!

Witness preformed many original songs. 
In the 1980's, we were editing this great song written by Billy Spence and decided to produce an alternative video......
;)
The band and crew always love a good laugh, and in some form of drunken state produced this thing!  (Sorry about the quality!) 
NOTE: Will probably only be funny for the band and crew, and our most loyal fans!

One of a number of videos about life on the road with the Witness Crew...

As Billy does an interview saying how the band is on the move, it's crew and equipment are not!

One of a number of videos about life on the road with the Witness Crew...

I think sometimes our road crew were mistaken as a biker gang! 

Dare say, they were a little more friendly!

Steelman's Last
Night
YouTube Video

This was Steelman's last night with the band, and covers all the goodbyes. Sorry for the video quality,  it was filmed in a small Philly area club by a friend with an old camcorder.

Parting Shot
Billy's Last
Night
YouTube Video
This is at the end of the last show preformed by Witness with Billy Spence. Recorded at the Green Pine, it was in Billy's words "The end of an era." This is truly a sad clip, recorded at the end of the night,
 New Years' Eve 92/93. 

Special Thanks go to Mitch Schecter, who has provided these audio tracks!
