At the time of this gig, ESSEX 6 was the latest version of a band that had started with high school kids in Orting, Washington.  You can tell  from our name that we were heavily influenced by the British invasion.  Our heroes were the Yardbirds, Stones, Beatles, Kinks and a young guy named J Hendrix.
