Hi, my name is Corky Bennett and I reside in Reno, NV.  In the years from 1954 - 1957, I was a member of a Seattle country band called the Buckaroos.  We entered every talent show there was in those days and won them all.  We beat out bands like the Four Frantics and every other Puget Sound band.  I played the accordion in the band.  We were sponsored by the Blackstone School of Music on Roosevelt Way, did hundreds of shows and appeared on Pacific Northwest TV many times.
