The Accents - For Your Dancing Pleasure

I formed a band in 1959.  In 1960 we called ourselves the "Accents" and played at many out of town gigs such as the lumber mill town of Roslyn and also Enumclaw.  Our home base was the Greenlake area.

In 1962 we started playing for University of Washington sororities and fraternities and landed gigs at the Space Needle and on local Cruise Ships.
