THREE SETS TO LOVE
Busch Campus Center, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ, September 12, 1997

The Professors' performance at the Busch Capus Center of Rutgers University is unique in that it consisted of three distinctive sets being played within one hour.

The first set featured T-ski on lead guitar and consisted of Five Long Years, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Dark and Stormy Day, and a rap version of Crap featuring Tomasz's son, Marcin Imielinski, and two of his friends.

T-ski left the stage following "Crap" and the remaining band members played a short set consisting of Crippled Inside, Foucault Funk, and You Oughta Know. "Mississippi" John Barrows gave a superlative debut performance on the blues harmonica.

Jon Paris joined the band on Knock on Wood in his second appearance with The Professors. Jon led an incredible half-hour set of rock-and-roll classics such as Twist and Shout, Gloria, Peter Gunn, In the Midnight Hour, Roadrunner, and a rousing finale of Chuck Berry's Johhny B. Goode.
