Did the Reindeer lounge go away with the Odyssey? I never made it there but worked at The Odyssey room from mid '85 to '89. Doorman, barback then bartender. I was on call part time Sunday's thru Monday night's. I still have my ruffles, bow tie and vest ! Gary, Sam and Tom I learned a few lessons from those men!

I was a Doorman/Bouncer there back in 1988-1990 and it was a time in my life that I will never forget. I meet my first wife there. I still remenber Dave the boss, Joe Spiser., Bruce, and all the great after work parties. I remeber the back bar and the one at the top of the stairs near the fron door with Les the lounge lizard hanging out.

I was the keyboard player with the Starkissed Band.  We played the Odyssey Room for a period of 5 years or so from 1977 through about 1981.  Had some pictures of the band there and some of the people but lost them over time.  Hope see more on this site.

I was in a band called No Doubt in the mid-80's. Gail booked us alot. We did openers for Greg Kihn, Eddie and the Tide, and many more. The funnest night was opening for Elvin Bishop. Great times at the Od. I still have a picture of the sign outside billing Greg Kihn and No Doubt somewhere. Will try to find and post it.
