Greg Wege, Chuck Hickman, Mike Matthews, Roger Wilkins, Tom Wolfe, Lelan “Tyke” Kuhlman - About 1995

Our regular haunts were:  Waldo’s on the Eastside,  Doc Maynard’s in Pioneer Square,  and Parkers Ballroom.  We were regulars at the Bite of Seattle as well.

We just performed this last July at “The Bite” on the Mural Amphitheater Stage for a fun reunion gig.

Thanks for running this site.  It’s really cool to see all my old friend here.
