Welcome To Old Hudson Valley Bands.

Featured Old Hudson Valley Band

It was 1972 at the Bachelor in Poughkeepsie and the original Harvest was onstage. From left to right are: Eddie Monteleone, guitar; John McCormick, bass; Guy Masson on drums; Dennis Blandino, guitar; and John Lockwood, guitar. Prior to this version of Harvest, Guy Masson played with the Teddy Boys and Mortimer. The two remaining "original old geezers" in the current Harvest (a quote from Dennis) are him and John McCormick. Keyboardist Steve Wanzer joined the current line-up in 1973 and drummer Paul Gilroy in 1974 (both were from the Mark 4 band). This line-up has been working for the past 36 years. If you go to their website at you will see a tribute to the late Eddie Monteleone and hear three of the last recordings Harvest did with him.
