There was a real good lounge group which I played in called "Sam Ramsey & the Chosen Few."  We performed at the SeaTac Hyatt and the Red Lion from 1973-1978.

I played accordion and piano, Ed Snyder on Hammond B-3, Carson Michaels or Jim Mitchell on drums, Pete Bellomo on trumpet, and our illustrious leader Sam Ramsey on bass and vocals.

Eddie Snyder and Pete Bellomo are still active in the Pacific Northwest music scene.
