We had a band, The Gents, from 1963 to 1969.  We were from the West Seattle area and played on gigs with such bands as The Enchanters, The Notations, and the early Dynamics just to name a few.

Jerry, John and I later ventured out after 1969 and played in a band that was called (don't laugh) Peter Puget and the Sounds."   It is too long of a story there to explain that one.  The drummer there was Mike Gearhart.  Later in 1970, that band became Souled Out. Shortly thereafter, I was listening to the Marine Corp Hymn - oorah!
