I was the keyboardist in The Control Boys.  The band also included Jesse Ruggles, Dave Eyerly, Mike Jones, Steve Hermenze, Darin Fox and Jeff Tibbets.  The band played all of the Salem, Eugene, and Portland venues, as well as Washington, and many colleges in the area.  They were active as a band from 1981 to 1984.
