Joe Roman & The White Angels; Band On The Go
At PU, we find Frank Brandis & Fred Sanders
attending a graduation ceremony. Frank cheered when
Victoria got her diploma & Fred did the same when
Danielle got hers. Afterwards, Frank met her parents.
After taking pics, Victoria told her parents she's
joining The White Angels.
"You mae me waste $30,000 in tuition fees?" asked
dad, "Now you anna waste your life blowin a trumpet."
"Chill honey," said her mother, "That's the boy
who proposed on Arthur McRyan."
"Mr. & Mrs. Lufkin, I'll take good care of your
daughter." said Frank as he & Vicki kissed.
The White Angels were now a famous band. Ray had
the band moved their families to houses on a private
street where they were neighbors. There were 8 houses
in a cul-de-sac.
In Joe Roman's house, we find him & his family
finishing a movie on the vcr. When he rewinded the
tape, he had the tv on ROCK-TV & found a surprise! He
saw a Phoebe Dee music video, but then he saw his
brother Matt play guitar & sing with Phoebe.
"He looks different!" said Lou.
Indeed he did. Matt had Joe's muscles, an iguana
tattoo on his left arm, tight pants, a beard & a Strat
electric guitar. Joe was shocked!
The next day, Joe saw Matt driving an electra
glide motorcycle as he came to visit his brother &
family. He went to his saddlebags & gave Liz a doll &
Scott a poster.
"Cool!" said Scott, "Uncle Matt's on a
motorcycle!" Scott showed the poster of him on his
bike with Strat in hand.
In the living room, Lou & Joe talked to Matt
about the changes.
Matt explained, "My band walked out on me because
of disagreements over music. I wanted to play rock &
lite rock, they wanted to do heavy metal. So I was
depressed. Phoebe asked me if I wanted to be her
partner & I did. I'm lead singer/guitarist. Phoebe
likes to see me with a guitar because it turns her
"It's cool you're teaming with Phoebe." said Joe.
"Joe," Matt asked, "Were both recording artists
of Pacific Records. I want to do our hit song we had
from Triple Pepperoni, Motorcycle Brothers."
"Matt, you & I live in 2 different worlds. You
rock, me, jazz & rock." said Joe, "No, you got Phoebe
& I got the band."
Days later, Ray Walters asked the band to visit
Pacific Records offices. When they arrived, they were
in a press conference with the media. Danielle sat on
Fred's lap. Ray entered & announced,
"Hello press, thanks for coming. I'm Ray
Walters, the White Angels' manager. Pacific Records
is putting a tour together for the main act & their
warm-up act, Phoebe Dee & Matt Roman."
Joe was surprised as Matt & Phoebe entered with
arms around each other. Ray continued,
"Mexico Wet Soda & Guts Swimwear will sponsor The
Phoebe-Matt/White Angels 2000 Tour. Half the concerts
will be @ waterparks."
Then Ray got a USA map out pointing the stops.
"The tour starts @ Cincinnati, then Lafayette,
Indiana, Chicago, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Kansas City,
Oklahoma City, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Phoenix &
finally Los Angeles for two concerts. One @ a
waterpark, the other @ The Hollywood Bowl. Any
"Lafayette, Indiana?" asked a reporter.
"A friend of mine named Billy Tremain asked us to
visit him." explained Joe.
"Which are waterpark concerts?" asked another.
"Lafayette, Oklahoma City, Dallas, San Antonio &
"Will the band wear Guts playing @ waterparks?"
asked a female reporter as girls scream. Ray nodded.
"You're fired, Eric!" yelled Frank, "You got us
into this mess making us the spokesband for Guts!"
"Fine!" said Eric, "Let me say something. On
Babe Watch, the guys always look dumpy & the babes are
sexy. There's been a female band in bikinis. It's
about time the tables are turned & let babes scream
over us. Whether were in our Guts or our white tuxes,
what makes our band popular is the music!" reporters
"Eric Hunter may be crazy, but he's the person
who holds the glue together for the band." said a
reporter, "You fire Eric, it'll be a mistake."
Frank humbly apologized to Eric.
Then another reporter asked,
"Will Frank & Vicki get married?"
"Vicki & I are getting married @ The Hollywood
Then Fred asked Danielle to get up as he & Matt
got out wedding rings & asked their girls,
"Will you marry me?"
Their girls kissed them. The reporters were
excited for a triple wedding.
"I've followed Joe & Matt since Triple
Pepperoni." said a reporter full of trivia, "Is there
a chance they'll re-record their hit, Motorcycle
"We'd like to, but Joe & I are in two different
music worlds." said Matt.
"Matt , it would be cool to re-release our song
agin." said Joe as they slapped hands.
At Frank's house, he was playing his trumpet in
Guts in the bedroom. He stopped & said,
"Maybe I'll get Andy Roman in."
"Frank Brandis, you won't do that!" snapped
Victoria in the bathroom.
"I'm the leader." he said, "It's embarrassing
enough we did two songs on ROCK-TV's Spring Break in
that swimwear, but a concert's ridiculous!"
"You think I look ridiculous?" asked Vicki. She
came out in a two-piece bikini swimwear. Frank
"It's normal for you, not for men." said Frank.
Victoria showed Frank on the computer that Guts
swimwear sales were soaring because of the band.
"Frank, if I could look cool & sexy, you can
too." said Victoria, "Let's finish packing."
"Later." said Frank as they kissed. Then Michael
entered the bedroom exclaiming,
"Dad, Vicki! We got a motorcycle in our
Michael left as they dressed themselves. Out in
theri driveway was a motorcycle-sidecar. There were 3
ninja bikes on Bart, Jason & Ralph's driveway. Then
another ninja motorcycle zoomed on the street
escorting a tour bus.
"Is this going to be a cool tour or what!" said a
voice in his helmet. He took off the helmet & Eric
Hunter had a motorcycle. Driving the bus was Ray.
Ray told the band that they will drive motorcycles on
the tour while he takes the wives & children via tour
bus with luggage. Ray also hired tour roadies to
handle their musical equipment. But Joe wanted his
guitar with him & Velma & Danielle wanted to ride
along with Ben & Fred.
The day came when along I-76 West leaving Philly
that there were 9 motorcycles crusin (Matt drove with
Phoebe behind + The White Angels) & a tour bus rolling
along as they headed to Cincinnati, Ohio.
