Tim Kwiat, Steve Brown, & Mike Bitts, have gotten together for the first time in over 15 years to play some old songs. In commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of 1995's "Painting In The Rain" album, the group reformed, adding Tim Halloran from "A Thousand Years", to perform a free show for family, friends, and anyone who happened to stop into the Ephrata Main Theater on May 31, 2015.
The original concept for the band's first (and only) album, was a celebration of a friendship that began in high school. That friendship continues to this day and was again the focal point for celebration. Steve envisioned a chronological performance that would build through a few key songs from Tim Kwiat's catalog, up to where "Painting In The Rain" was realized. Due to schedules and time constrictions, the band opted to take only a few of those songs and mix them together with a few influential covers. After an intermission, Super Genius performed the entire "Painting In The Rain" album in sequence. The performance was loose and casual - almost a jam that kept things fresh and fun. What A Great Day!!!!
