The Secrets Reunite For Library Benefit Concert

By Staff | Jun 21, 2011

A free Aug. 6 outdoor concert at the Middlebourne Senior Center will reunite The Secrets, a once-popular local rock band formerly led by Middlebourne natives Kathy and Dan Fisher, and will benefit the Middlebourne Public Library.

The is the first time The Secrets have played together since 1984 and is a one-time-only event. While still attending Tyler County High School, Kathy Fisher fronted The Secrets, who performed all over the Ohio Valley in the early 1980s before disbanding after their final show at Middlebourne’s Mountain Gap in 1984. Kathy eventually moved to Los Angeles and founded the band Fisher with her husband, Ron Wasserman. Fisher the band had a regional number one Top 40 single, I Will Love You, and their original songs appeared on numerous film scores and television soundtracks throughout the past two decades, including Jon & Kate Plus 8. They performed on The Tonight Show and Live! With Regis & Kelly.

Kathy’s brother, Dan, played bass for The Secrets and leads a successful career in the motion picture industry, most recently as Property Master on Black Swan. His previous projects include Men in Black, Matewan, Mississippi Burning, and the television dramas White Collar and Law and Order.

Another Tyler County alumnus, Steve Markle, is the band’s drummer and New Martinsville native Douglas Ebert handles guitar duties. Both were professional musicians during the 1990s.

The free outdoor event features food and entertainment for the entire family. The band will cover many of the familiar popular hits from its 1980s set list, as well as a few Fisher originals. Rain or shine, the show is set for Aug. 6, 5-8 p.m. at the Middlebourne Senior Center.

All proceeds will go toward the construction a new public library. There are no alcoholic beverages permitted.
