85 Nov 30: Totta's Bluesband perform at 'ANC -galan' (a benefit concert for ANC) - and announce officially that the band is splitting up. However, reunions do happen, and since these guys go on gigging with each other in various combinations one gets the impression that it is the name of the band that has been shelved - not the band itself.
