Skyband was a signed USA east coast psychedelic rock group from 1969-1972. As the blacklight era began to fade into different music styles, the group disbanded. The psychedelic rock group consisted of (Al Fridkis: keyboards and lead vocals,) (Cecil Lyons: Bass guitar, saxophone, and background vocals), and Lenny Rocket: Drums and lead vocals). In the 1980s, Skyband reformed, changed the music style to soft rock, and shortened their name to Sky70. Lenny Rocket was the only original member from the 1970s band, and sings lead on all of the 1980s soft rock songs, all of which were recorded live. These new songs are available on most of the major worldwide music sites, and online stores. Since then Sky70 has been awarded a gold auddy from Uplaya (gold auddy #51788) in 2011 for their song The Asking.
