Some of the early Pacific Northwest music groups represented in members of of include The Deacons, Product Fyve, The Mystics, The Crystal Ship, Ruckus and Charly Browne's All Stars

We enjoyed a high degree of success and exposure on a local level (all we really wanted) and opened quite a number of really great concert/dances for the likes of:  Mark Lindsay, Paul Revere and The Raiders, The Kingsmen, Merrilee Rush, Uriah Heep, The Box Tops, Johnny Rivers, Randy Bachman, Foghat, Rick Derringer, Rare Earth, The Association and others.  We did it all for fun.

The rhythm section, in my estimation, was as good as it gets.  Jim Sola, of the Deacons, and Jack Hourcade, a transplanted Cajun Bass player from New Orleans and I were together for 8 years.  I was truly blessed, and proud to say I played with these guys.

Flashback also opened for Ronnie Montrose, the Drifters and Steppenwolf.
