The Reactions

I was hoping I could find more info on these guys, what else is new. Most sites having anything on The Reactions, have them originating from Ft. Lauderdale, but everything I've read points a little further south to Miami Beach.
They formed around 1979, and released two gems on (I assume) their own Reaction Records Label.
The band broke up shortly after their second release, The Love You E.P., singer Tony Supa left the band to take over his families business.
If anyone would like to add to this, or correct me, please feel free. One of the main reasons I do this, is to learn about my favorite records, I like being corrected.
I found a pretty cool Utube interview with Joey Maya, and Issac Baruch you can check out HERE . I decided to list both of these classics together, enjoy! The Band was; Tony Suppa, (Vocals) Issac Baruch, (Guitar) Johnny Salton, (Bass) and Joey Maya (drums).
