I know of at least two bands named Atlantis in the NW.  Do you know the Atlantis pictured above?  If you have more information about this group. please send it to

Sam Carlson, Webmaster, August 2002

It was reported today that the Atlantis pictured above was formed from the remnants of The Sirs after their breakup.
27 November 2002

Arthur Salazar along with Randy Calcagno and I were from The Sirs.  Everett Simila and Peggy Adams were also part of The Sirs to Atlantis transformation at one time or another.  When the band broke up, Randy started the second version of Atlantis.
