The Downbeats formed at Sammamish High School in the mid-1960s.  We played an assortment of school, church and community club dances, plus frat parties.  Two notable gigs were a battle of the bands at Lake Hills Roller Rink, and another battle at the Crest Theatre in Seattle. The group disbanded in 1967 when most of us graduated, but several members went on to notable tenures with other bands.
