Hello All,  I have a program for the  pre jubilee Sacramento 
performances and it includes Fireworks that listed their home base as 
Australia in past years.   I think that Simon Stribling  now lives in 
British Columbia but the rest of the band hails from the land of Oz.  My 
official program has not arrive  yet  so I have no further information.
