Louie, although Nektar first disbanded when we all parted in January 1978, there were FOUR small club dates listed in July 1978 , the first two were with Ryche Chlandra to replace Roye, the second gig included Dave Nelson too, but Roye just happened to be in NYC at that same time.... those gigs are as follows:-
July 1st, Players Tavern, Westport CT. (w/ Ryche, Mo, Ron & Taff) + Roye later. Bootlegged.
July ?, Great Gildersleeves, NYC. (w/ Ryche, Dave, Mo, Ron, Taff) & Roye turned up there too.
July 15th, Giulios South, Asbury Park NJ. (w/ Roye, Mo, Ron & Taff), as the original quartet.
July 16th, My Fathers Place, Roslyn, NY. (Roye, Mo, Taff & Ron only) Bootlegged.
One final "original Nektar quartet" gig came later in 1978, on Nov 22nd, at Stars in Philadelphia.
While we we doing the MiaC tours in 1977, Roye had joined others in England to form "Snowball", and they recorded "Defroster", but as Roye had more songs for another album, he came back over to NYC in 78 to try and enlist another original member to be able to use the Nektar name. 
 Roye succesfully enlisted Taff to play along with Carmine Rojas & Dave Prater to replace Mo & Ron... so in MAY of 1979 Roye, Taff, Carmine & Dave played 4 gigs prior to recording Royes' "Man in the Moon" together, they were also advertised as "Roye Albrightons' Nectar" (yes, with a "c"!)... 
East Orange NJ on the 13th,
My Fathers' Place in Roslyn on the 18th,
The Bayou in DC on the 24th and
Alexanders in Browns Mills NJ on the 25th of May,
3 of those 1979 gigs are bootlegged.  After MitM was recorded, Roye returned to England.
Roye did take Taff, Dave and Carmine on two German tours in October 1980 & April 1981 to push MitM before finally ending that period of "Royes' Nektar".
Incidentally, here is a 1975 interview with Mo, courtesy of Steve Laifer in NYC...
