The corner of North Water and Second Street in Algoma was rocking Friday night to the music of The Shy Guys, much like it did throughout the 80s and much of the 90s. Bryan Neubauer of Ahnapee Construction hosted a Captain’s Table Reunion Party across the street from the building that housed his parent’s bar and restaurant from 1979-1999. Former employees and customers were on the guest list.
Neubauer says he was five or six when his parent’s opened the restaurant and was a cook there when he got a little older. He estimates The Shy Guys played 40 or 50 shows at the restaurant during its heyday.
