Whatever happened to ... Alana Shor

Full story: Baltimore Sun

If you were partying hearty around Baltimore in the 1970s and 1980s, there's no way you could have missed Paper Cup, later Shor Patrol, which at the time was one of Baltimore's hottest and best-loved Top 40 ...

Thanks for bringing back the memories...I was a kid in the 70s and by the time I was old enough to go see them they broke up, but I remember reading of them and seeing ads for their shows and even remember a coversation with my mom about them. Glad she still has her hand in the entertainment business, but I can still hope for a reunion show so I can finally see them for myself.

Paper Cup was a staple at Kahls (sp?) in Perry Hall. They were great-always drew crowds. Nice bunch of people, too. They'd show up at parties we had in Bel Air.

Sorry they didn't go farther in the business.

I still have their LP!! Actually, I think it was an "EP"...only four songs on it. I remember seeing them a lot at the Paddock in OC.

I also remember following Paper Cup around Baltimore/Pennsylvania and of course down the ocean at the Paddock. Darryl Matarroza was the bass player when I was following them. I've got the album also.

I was there where she first played the Baltimore Playboy club with our band called "Fresh Air". I was 17 years old with a fake ID that her boyfriend Ron Morgan gave me.
Thank God that is all in the past! Now I help independent bands get connected with major labels.( www.stcroixmusic.com ) and I live in paradise and no longer have to deal with such bullshit like being ripped off of the first song that I ever wrote called "Just don't care". I did not know about copyrights at the time because I was so young. But Alana and her boyfriend taught me a lesson that I will never forgot.
My non profit magazine is read in 64 countries and I think that it's time for everyone to know just what Alana Shor is all about. This is long overdue.- JJ

Which drummer are you referring to? Paper Cup / Shor Patrol had three different drummers.

I loved Paper Cup. I was in my late teens and every time they came around, I was there. I was gaga over the keyboard player who sang "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy". I never hear that song when I don't think of him! I cannot remember his name now - seems to me it's something like Rick or Rich Kimbrorough or Wimborough. I just can't remember.

I loved listening to Alana's voice. I was in the Ladies at the same time she was. I tried to small talk to be friendly but she was the furthest thing from friendly!! I was really surprised. But I stayed and danced with me friends and had a great time.

I remember them appearing in a club in Cockeysville/Lutherville area, the Paddock in Oc, many bull roasts and dances,, and last but not least, the Golden 40 Inn club. I remember when the released "Looking for You." I really hoped it would be their big break. Came here trying to find out whatever happened to them. The are a big part of my youth and boy did I love that band!
