 Inside a cordoned off section of a darkened restaurant in Smith River the searing rock music of Deep Purple’s “Smoke on the Water” shook the room, then suddenly stopped. The music started again, and stopped. The cycle repeated itself a few more times until the five band members of Point Taken were satisfied with the song.

“We want to be the best band around,” drummer Jay Smith said during a break in rehearsal. His four band members nodded in agreement.

Sounds like the typical rock and roll dream of any garage band. Only thing is, this isn’t the typical garage band. Smith, at age 54, is the baby of the band. Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist James (Anderson) Night is 56; lead guitarist Juwat is 59; bassist/vocalist Kurt Kessler is 57; and keyboardist/guitarist Tom Alderman is 55.
