One thought on “Ripley’s Music Hall”

  1. I lived in New Jersey , and frequented South Street all the time back in
    ” circa 1978-1982. Last time i visited South Street was “circa 1979-81? I saw Mitch Rider and The Detroit Wheels. Oh Boy! “Memories may be beautiful, but yet whats to painful to remember, we simply choose to forget”…Awesome night, Awesome times
