This was an outstanding horn band with strong vocals. We played Chicago, Blood Sweat and Tears, Electric Flag and great dance music. We could play "Introduction" by Chicago and other technically challenging charts. We put on  shows at The Iron Bull nightclub, Plutos, Viking Union (on W.W.U. campus).

We also performed at "The Interlude" at Sea-Tac. We also did shows with Nancy Claire at John-Johns nightclub in Seattle. Nancy and Chris sang Duets with outstanding horn arrangements by Kell Houston and the Clever Baggage Horns. Vic Bundy pushed a Hammond B3 with 4 Leslie Speakers and Sam Wisner was a fabulous drummer.

Wonderful talent came together and a solid sound was produced!
