Above – Dan Burg, June 12, 2016:You need to contactTony Carini from The Crisis! for info about Rainbow Bridge. I believe his brother was in that band around 1976. Here is all I have: “Ross Carini, and Randy Dietz, Marc Winclif (North), and Bob Burton, also from North. Wink is the drummer.” This is a picture of Rainbow Bridge.

Tom Snyder – Tony still plays. Played at Summerfest last year with Kevin Brandt’s band. Seeing him on Friday night.. maybe I can talk him into a reunion. February 5, 2012 at 9:19am

Tracey Ellicson-Ratzburg – pretty funny – Tony Carini used to play in a band called The Crisis – he retired from them a few years back but did get him to finally sign my yearbook at St Boniface a couple of years ago!! February 15, 2013 at 9:06pm

Scott Morgan – There was another band in the area at the time – Grand Jury – with Dave Philipson (rhythm guitar), Larry Olbrantz (lead guitar), Ed Powell (keyboards), and Rick Gerlach (drums) from East, and brothers Bruce Smith (bass) and Phil (keyboards) from North. Dave and Bruce eventually moved down to Florida, as did RANDY DIETZ, and they all hooked up to form another band, Stache. I moved down later and had the privilege of kinda, sorta being a roady for them. Awesome times then, too, seeing them play out at bars. Dave is the best storyteller about the craziest times. Dave still play, but I don’t think Randy has picked up his guitar in decades. February 16, 2013 at 9:15am

Marlene Manske – There was a band in the 70’s from East. Ron Tiefenbacher, Randy Borreson, his brother and I forget the other guys name. Anyone remember their name? February 16, 2013 at 9:26am

Jeffrey Ullsperger – Marlene, if I remember correctly…the band you speak ofwas the original “Rainbow Bridge” that had Ross Carini (one of Tony’s older brothers) as their bass player. After they disbanded (and I don’t think they were together for all that long), Tony re-employed the “Rainbow Bridge” name for the band he put together with the guys pictured above.

Anne Langenhahn Maxfield – The Carini family lived across the street from my family in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Spent many summer days and nights listening to the band practicing in Carini’s garage, giving the whole subdivision a concert. It was great!!! July 2, 2013 at 6:19pm
