NOTE:  Byron regrets that there is neither room enough on this page nor time enough in the day to list the one million nightclubs played, nor the hundreds of club bands with whom, in the name of diversity, he has bravely explored such a wide spectrum of competence and volume levels. Nor can he summon the patience in his soul to mention every time he has played in a tux, though he has so often found himself in truly proud company during those situations.
