The Clamdiggers

As the pandemic drags on, we hope that all of you are well and that the Covid virus has not affected you, your family or your friends in any way.  On a positive note (pardon the pun) the band is thrilled to announce that we have added former lead singer of the band Dreamer, Anthony Racioppi, to our line up. Anthony's great voice and hard-rocking style is going to be a welcomed addition to the band and we can't wait until we are able to perform for you again. Hopefully that will be sooner than later.

 

Regards,

Mikey, Tiny, Jimmy & Anthony
