Hi. I'm the bass player for a Bremerton-based band called The Coming Generation during the 1965-67 era.  We played numerous high school proms and all-city dances and other gigs including one in 1966 with the Daily Flash in Pioneer Square.  It was a Toga Party sponsored by the U of W School of Architecture, no less.

Our worst gigs were the Enlisted Men's Club for the Navy in Bremerton (drunken sailors inevitably led to brawls and flying beer pitchers). Some of us previously played with a Pouslbo area band called The Fortunes.

I am looking for my old band members.  Any help in locating these folks will be appreciated. MY email is:     Thanks!!!
