Staged Musicians Review, Worton, Md., January-February 1983
Like the price of gold, Newark, Delaware’s Bad Sneakers rise toward the top. In the past six months, Bad Sneakers have been recognized in several musician publications, although the band has received recognition after their first record’s production.
The C-Town Saloon of Chestertown, Md., listened and found early talents new to the Eastern Shore. The band easily packs and holds their crowd throughout each performance.
The band in itself is a well organized, thinking tribia. Bass player Dale Dallabrida is the advertising executive. Ward Camp, keyboard, is the producer of first album “Sneak Attack.”
There is power in numbers and that force is the remaining members. Shane Fanon and Marc Moss, keep the guitar’s statue in a non-replaceable character for performance.
Amazement is Neal Tillotson, his vocals are in no way a personal strain, especially behind a drum throne. Drums are played with little thought for mistake.
No gold bar is complete without the shine. And that shine is where you will find light and sound man, Greg Mak. Congratulations Bad Sneakers, your talents are the dreams of many. We hope that your value in gold will reach a priceless success.

****MUSICIAN OF THE MONTH****
More than a musician, that’s how we describe Ward Camp, manager and producer of Rock Band Bad Sneakers. Within his fifteen years of music Ward has played bass guitar, sax, clarinet to his new loved keyboard. While attending the University of Miami, Ward achieved a double major, one in music, the other in business. Now doing studio work he finds his talent searching for the production of other groups as well as his first love Bad Sneakers.
Ward’s latest achievement has been the producing of a cover album for Bad Sneakers. For those going into the music field Mr. Camp gives this advice, “Your motive in order to succeed must be music, not money. His success is growing with the popularity of Bad Sneakers on the Eastern Shore.
Though we found Ward to be of good humor, he is definitely one to take his music serious. After all, music is a story of life, isn’t that what we’re living.

HARD ROCK THE GOOD, BAD AND LOUD
What’s the message carried with a song loud enough to crack you ear drums? First the good. Hard Rock expresses a release of energy. This leaving our imagination to free emotions that inhibit us. Without this type of growth we would still be in the medieval age.
The Bad, well, the music has no real value. At least nothing we can identify with. Hard Rock stands for change. Buy why so loud. No doubt dangerous to our hearing! I guess some bands want you to feel that a space ship is about to land on your head. Think about it. Still the music seems threatening. After all, We have yet to hear hard rock at the White House.
