Toy Soldiers, Andrew Combs and Mike McMonagle SHARE the stage at The Chameleon Club – Lancaster, PA

With Mike McMonagle, Andrew Combs and Toy Soldiers on the bill, the Chameleon Club was the place to be last Thursday night. It was a small intimate show that was filled with music lovers.

Mike McMonagle played a song with Andrew Combs and Toy Soldiers, Toy Soldiers were the backing band for Andrew Combs, and...
