Randy & Steve later left the band and were replaced by John Graser on drums & Jerry Keirnan on the Hammond B3 organ.

We played R&B all over the NW, mainly colleges, frat houses, high schools, some night clubs.   We played at Oregon State University the University of Oregon many times in the late 60's.   I have to wonder if the name for the band in the movie Animal House (Otis Day & the Knights) wasn't a twist on our R&B band name.

I remember when the Daze of Nite opened up for the James Gang at the Salem Oregon Armory.  Jimi is a fantastic guitar player. He can play Hendrix perfect. He can play anything.
