The Barons played around Tacoma in 1966-1967 or so.  At first they were called The Egyptians and perhaps some other before they settled on The Barons. They added my sister to the line up to play organ and called themselves Cindy and the Barons.

They participated in a battle of the bands one year at Fort Lewis and the stage was nearly overrun when Steve said we will need a little help with this song, that being Oo poo pah doo, but before he got that far they were climbing up on the stage trying to get at our sister.  It freaked her out as I remember.  She was perhaps 14 or 15 years old at the time.

We did have our own night club down in Lacey for a tiny while, and we played the Evergreen Ballroom one time, second to Paul Revere and the Raiders.
