One of the best "East side" bands of the early days, they played all of the big rooms

and even opened up at a few concerts.




I got a note from Bob Stroh:

Hi, my name is Bob Stroh and I was the former singer for Mossberg Shotgun. I'm still alive and kicking and living in Robertsville, Mo. After Mossberg broke up I kicked around a few bands with Gary Hudson. After about 12-14 years I started doing prison ministry in Mo. and Il. I became disabled about 18 years ago. I still play a little for my own enjoyment and I sometimes miss the old days.
