I played drums in the Balloon Farm in 1968 and 1969, and stay in touch with Dan Mallory and Lynn Francis.

Ross Prince, December 2007

I am the original bass player of the Ballon Farm.  I was playing bass in the 1968 picture at Shorecrest  High School.  Lynn Francis is the other original member of the band that was in that picture.

We had two lead singers leave the band because of the military draft and I was drafted in 1969 and spent 1970 in Viet Nam.

Other Original members were Ernie Dahlgren-guitar and vocals, Jeff Frewalt-guitar, Art Haynes-drums.
