Bufalo Killers [l-r]: Zach Gabbard [bass]; Sven Kahns [guitar]; Joe Sebaali [drums]; Andy Gabbard [guitar]

The Infinity Ball: Saturday Night

The Infinity Ball: Rick Reed lead vocals/guitar; Tom Jansing drums; John Stickney guitar/vocals and John Hoerr bass/vocals

It's the same old story... boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy mopes until his buddies can't take it anymore and drag him out for guy's night.  Later, boy meets new girl, boy's psycho ex-girlfriend screws things up, boy contemplates love and Mexican food...we've all been there before.

This is the story line for the album Saturday Night just released by Cincinnati's The Infinity Ball.
