In Memory of

Buddy White

Early Morning Sunrise was was a short lived PNW band.  All the members were U.S. Coast Guard stationed in Sitka, Alaska.   They were five guys with completely different musical backgrounds that melted together to make one of Sitka's most popular bands.

For two years they performed every Friday & Saturday night, other than contracted special performances, at the Sitka Moose Lodge.  They enjoyed a medley of bluegrass, classic & modern country, 50's & 60's rock with some 70's tossed in as well.  Special performances included the BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs), ALP (Alaska Lumber & Pulp) and the Sitka Convention Center, & Sitka Sound Seafood also at the Sitka Convention Center.
