Comments: I was just looking through web sights and stumbled across this one. With Tiny Tony and the Rock n Roll Jones. It brought back such memories for me to see this, and see my father looking so young, and with so much hair. I remember the band rehearsing at my house, as well as Bob Horn's and I vaguely remember being at Tiny Tony's once. Granted I was only 9 at the time, and it was nearly 20 years ago, so the memory is a bit faded, but still warm.

Comments: This site has become a lot better than the last time I looked at it... Congratulations on a fine job! I grew up listening in Seattle and was heavily into listening to NW bands from the time I was ~5 (I have a 7 years older sister who used to listen to R&B when our dad wasn't around), until I left there in 1976. I remember being confused by a lot of the covers that white singers did (esp. Pat Boone's covers of Little Richard - yeccch!) because I had heard the originals.  My buds and I used to go to all the other high school dances before we could drive, just because they had live bands in the early 60s. I remember that a lot of them were held at the auditorium (gym?) at Green Lake. The word would travel like wildfire whenever a local band was going to perform. I also remember the great street dance that the Sonics did at the UofW circa the mid 60s. Then things exploded about 1966-67 with lots of "acid" bands from all over the U.S. coming in for gigs. You could usually see them on the "Ave" driving their psychedelically painted vans: the Seeds, Grateful Dead, etc. I remember drinking white wine out of a watermelon when the Dead did a free concert at Golden Gardens; the Sky River festivals; just about every well-known band in the world - from Ike & Tina, to the Doors, to who can remember them all performing for hours and hours and hours out at Gold Creek Park in (when) 1969? God, it was great to be young, and alive, and into music, and stoned!

Thanks for bringing back all of those great memories. Now if someone would only put together a great box set compilation of all the best of the Northwest Sound from the late 50s to the mid 60s. The Regents (of course), Tiny Tony & the Counts, the Sonics, Jimmy Hanna and the Dynamics (gawd I'd love to hear their version of "Leaving Here" again!), the Wailers, and on and on.
I'd be ecstatic to hear from any ot the people I knew during those times that see this (overly long) note... especially Sally. (Remember what a dud the piano drop was at first Sky River festival?

I have tried for years to find him and say hi. Last I heard he may have been living in Portland Oregon. Any way I can find out how to get in touch with Carl? He was very good friends with my mom and does not know she passed away. Thanks, and this is a great website! Diana

Tell Freddie that I'm still waiting for him to return my record albums that I loaned to him 35 years ago. They must be worth a fortune by now! What was the name of your 60's band? I've been tearing my hair out trying to locate "Florence of Arabia" that you guys played sooo well. (Please hurry ASAP! I don't have much hair left!)
PS: Kent, Please get well soon! We need you to play just one more set!

Comments: Great website. I love the sound clips. I love NW rock. I grew up in Olympia and my stepdad used to always talk about seing the Sonics and the Wailers at the Evergreen Ballroom.  I was wondering where that song "Comin Home" came from.  Reason I ask, is that the pioneer ska band the Skatalites (from Jamaica, early sixties) has a song called Christine Keeler that sounds exactly the same.  Any ideas on how both songs sound so similiar? Just curious if there's any connection.
Keep it up.

Comments: This Band is NOT the Shades. This band played at Tommy Chong's club The Elegant Parlour. The Real Shades were called Laverne Gerrard and the Shades. Laverne Gerrard is Donny Gerrard's older brother. Donny Gerrard sang with BJ Cook on the song Wildflower.  Ron Kawamoto I believe was guitar player in the Shades as well. They played a lot at the Capital Hill Community Center in Burnaby in the early 60's.

The Club called T's cabaret on Pender Street in Vancouver, as well in the early 60's was Tommy Melton's Club.  He sang with Tommy Chong, Floyd & Bernie Sneed.  Roslyn Keene also sang with Tommy Melton.  I hope I have been of some help.
This is what the internet is capable of. Bringing old friends back together.
Thank you so much for all the work you have put in.

Comments: When I was a little girl, my mom was friends with Wheatfield.  Some of the guys used to sometimes stay at our house.  She would ALWAYS go see them every time they were in town, every night.  She didn't even miss a night when she had mono (but she didn't know she had it then).  I used to love to watch her dance and the guys were always really nice to me.  I hear they might be performing again and now I'm old enough to go see them! I've waited just about my entire life for this!  We still listen to their album and the 45s they put out. I love the happiness they brought her then and I love the happiness it's always brought her.
I can't wait to see them again!!!

Comments: Re your entry for the Runabouts (Spokane, ca. early 1960s)-- if this is the band that changed its name from the Cobras to the Runabouts (in about 1962), a band member to be added to the two listed is Ron Irwin (sax player).

Comments: My son found this site during a search of my name.He e-mailed me the information.  I was a founding member of the Orbits and played tenor saxophone,clarinet and did some back-up singing with them from about 1957 to about 1961.I was with the band when we decided to call ourselves the Orbits.We chose that name because in 1957 the exploration of space was just beginning.We thought the the Orbits was a great name at that time. I have lost contact with all the original members that I played with at and would appreciate any help in reconnecting with them.
I have lived in Winnipeg since 1967 and am currently quite musically active playing with two big-band era dance bands and also with two community concert bands.  Thanks for doing all the work to get this great web site up and running.

We loved the Vancouver bands, and would have loved to see lots of bands in the Northwest, if we'd been there. Thanks for a nice list of artists. Does anyone have info on a band "Stony Plain" (not the record label)? They may have been from Edmonton, but I think they were based in Van around 1970. Nice jazzy guitar, and two keyboards...maybe Hammond B3s. Thanks, Mike K

They played with Jason Hoover and Epics, Night Train Revue, and the The Collectors during those years. One album I am still looking for is called Live at the Grooveyard in New West BC.

Comments: I have surfed your site and found tons of bands & people that I remember from the 60's. What a "gas"! :-)

With your permission, I'll journey back in time for a moment...  In '58, I received a Silvertone electric guitar for xmas. I immediately bragged to my cousin in sumner, that I had a band (although I only knew 3 chords at the time). A month later, he called and asked me my band's name, 'cause he had already rented the hall and cop, and was ready to print posters. arrrgghh.. I had no band, but I was not going to lose face, so I made up a band name on the spot, "The Reelmen".

I gathered a motley crew of friends (we were freshmen/sophmores in h.s.)who had some experience with an instrument. Drums, tenor sax, and piano (no bass), and after one practice learning 2 songs, we went to sumner for our first gig. My mom drove us down in her '48 Nash. We barely got ourselves and all the equipment in, such as it was. Jeez, I'm starting to ramble... ok we got to the hall, set up, and waited for customers. My 15 year old cousin (who would be a crazy entrepreneur all his life) was strutting around importantly, counting the money that would be soon coming in the door.  One person came.

We played our 2 songs over and over for 30 minutes, gave the customer back her $1, and had my mom drive us back to Seattle, to disband forever. I guess you can say, thats showbiz.  .I did continue in music tho, spending a couple years with "The Tremblers" in 59-60, then the "El Caminos", which changed their name to Woody Carr & the Entertainers in the mid-sixties, and finally broke up (as all bands do) in 1968. We did play a few good spots like Parkers (a battle with the Dynamics), the Evergreen Ballroom, and even a week at the old A-go-go in Seattle. arrghhh, got to get back to work... will always have the best memories of my rock & roll playing days in the 60's, and where better to spend my semi-retirement years but here at the Experience Music Project. "Outta-sight!"

Is it possible to have more of such pictures?   Is there one of the Regents in 1970?

Comments: Hey, Sam      It's been a while. Sorry I lost touch with you. But running a language school and taking care of a little seven-month-old future rock n' roller do take a lot of time.   I just wondered if anyone out there has copies of a couple of singles that I've been trying to get for years. I was with "The Dark Horse Band" in the early 70's and we recorded two singles. One was "Listen to your Heart"/bw "Day after Day" and the second was called "Love needs Care"/bw "Look at the way she dances". I had copies for years but, over time, things just kinda slip away. Y'know?
The site is greater than ever! Keep on keepin' on, man!

He fitted me out with the latest stylish threads (Mick was always well dressed because he worked in a men's clothing shop, too. His dad was a Music Professor at the University of Washington (UW) and was a woodwinds specialist. I visited his dad there once, and he was re-keyings an instrument in preparation for a particular run in a passage of music. I have good memories of Mick and would like to have him contact me again.

He and I play 50's & 60"s music together, he on the snare drum and I play guitar and sing. I had many bands during my high school and after year's back in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We played at high school dances, beach venues and ski hills.
Gary doesn't have email or internet unfortunately but with the printout he can go to an internet cafe and see the photos online.
He will be really excited about these photos and website.
Thanks for taking care of it.

But not untill 1975. We headed to Phoenix Az in 1972 Changed the name to Reign and had a lot of success.

Comments: My father Jim Westby died when I was young and he was in Paul Bearer and the Hearsemen along with my uncle Ed Westby. I didnt know he was in a band until the last 15 years. I am curious if you could send me information or how I could get a hold of his music. It is amazing to see that their song "Ive been thinking" is on the net and on various cds. Amazon.com has his song on a various artist cd The world is not round its Square...or something like this. Just curious if you can help at all thanks.

The last time I say you, you where at Deb's Cafe in Creston Washington. It was about 1982 or 83. Do you remeber my mother, Bert Bonnalie, she was watting tables in the lounge. I just happened to see your name on the PNW Bands list, and I could not help but send this line.

Comments: I managed a couple of bands in the early 60's. The Nightwalkers out of Orting, Wa. The Zebra's out of Tacoma and Thee English Court also out of Tacoma. In all of these, I had one member who was constant, that was my lead singer, a girl named Teri Hoyt, she played rhythm guitar and was also a songwriter. But, a band I'm curious about was one out of Pacific City, So of Auburn. The bands name was The Exotics, perhaps their most famous tune was "Four Banger". Do you have any info on these guys? Thanks

Comments: A great site. Thanks for your hard work.  In the late 60's I had a promotion company that did Friday night dances in Whatcom County. Your site mentions the Beacon Ballroom, in Whatcom County, but the Assumption Gym and Forrest Grove Ballroom were also used extensively, as well as Village West, at Birch Bay. Other local bands from Whatcom County/Bellingham would include SPQR and Craig Cole & The Rebels
I no longer have pictures unfortunately.  Also, the Bellingham Accents had a record on Jerden; Bacon Fat. I have a copy. The band is listed but the record is not mentioned.
Thanks again

Great energy, great attitudes, great work ethic.  They ain't the best individual players I've ever seen, but as a band, working unit, they just rock. I told Jon that my ass had been kicked so hard that I was gonna go home and CRY!

Comments: My friend Tim Bonow, former member of 1960s and 1970s bands Jack Horner and the Plums and Juggernaut, respectively, told me about your web site. Tim now lives in Fort Worth Texas and is still playing. His brothers Dan and Peter are also keeping the faith. Dan continues to write AMAZING material and Peter heads up a Tacoma-based soul band called The Sensations.

In 1965-1968 I played with two bands; The Bare Roots and the Soul Sounds. They were basically garage bands and of little note, but the Soul Sounds was managed by the notorius film maker Karl Krogstad, who managed to get us high school dances and frat and sorority gigs nearly every weekend through '66-'68.

In the 70s I played in various bands with many of the characters listed in your terrific web site. I'm sad to learn of Ron Brockman's death (Bazarak); I played with Ron in a '70s band called Eclipse. He was great people.

I also managed to have seen many of the groups you have listed back in their heyday. I was really blown away by the entry on Mr. Clean and the Cleansers, whom I saw perform in 1965 at a church dance held at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church, located on 35th ave. N.E. in Seattle.

Another oustanding event was hearing the Dave Lewis Trio and the Jimmy Hanna Big Band open up for Booker T. and the MGs at the Seattle Center Arena in summer of 1967.

Nowadays I sometimes play guitar with the Fabulous Wailers, "filling in" for Rich Dangel, the Northwest's greatest guitarist. I am also playing with LJ Porter and the Vampin' Hos, and do some picking with country singer Ray Cole.

Thanks very much to the Regents and co. for putting this thing together.

I am the Master Percussion Teacher for the Ted Brown Music Flagship store in Tacoma. I have ~50 private students. I do a lot of pick-up gigs playing jazz, blues, R & B as well as symphony and stage musicals in Tacoma and Seattle. I had a very fun and fruitful career as a firefighter/paramedic in King County for 25 years but went right back to music when I retired. My first job when I rejoined the music scene was as the JR/SR high band and jazz band teacher at Cascade Christian Jr/Sr. High School in Puyallup. I can be reached at 253-921-2162. Or at the store (Ted Brown) at 253-475-1012.

I did play in a couple of other bands during that time frame and I do have b/w pictures that I will get scanned and uploaded as soon as possible. Is there a phone number where you can be contacted? Thanks for bringing back some very fond memories!!

He helped me get a casual job checking i.d. at the Slide-In tavern at Snoqualmie Pass ski area. For one hour of work, I was paid two pitchers of beer. I was 19 years old and nobody thought to check the i.d. of the checker. I was in heaven. I last ran into him in Sun Valley around '78.  I'm still teaching skiing, now at Crystal Mountain.

There is a photo posted for anyone's curiosity, with names of these musical monsters. This was the "infancy" of Rock n Roll, and we were typical of it . . .full of energy and ambition, and volume knob on the "10" notch. Great times, without a doubt! I'm still playing, though not near as much these days; did a pretty steady diet of it from '75 to '00, from Country Rock to blues to gut-bustin' back-to-the-basics Rock n Roll. Wouldn't trade the experience and the fun for anything. Still ready to play, and golly, now I have 3 bass guitars!

Comments: I stumbled on your site by accident and lo and behold there was a band I was in "Johnny & The Marks." The Pullman WA Version, After Jim Left the Band we continued as Mid Life Crisis" for many years and were an opening act for "Head East" and Eric Burden." Its great to see a site like this. I hail originally from the Tri Cities and you might be interested in Knowing that some of the premiere musicians, not only N.W but nationally came from that area. Names like Steve Hickman, John La Chappel, Ray Beauchamp,Larry Coryell, Curly Cunningham and many more. These guys were friends, mentors and local icons. Perhaps if you get an interest, you should check them out. Some have passed much too early. If you are interested drop me a line.

How do we get bands added to this site, as there are many more great Northwest bands worth mention. The Heatseekers (killer band from B'ham), Mike Shira and Kissaxe, By Request, Watertown Blues Band,Foot Lucy, and a ton more.

Comments: The Rich Dangel memorial concert was everthing we expected and more...a virtual "who's who" of Pacific Northwest bands of the 50's, 60's, 70's and present-day blues. Among the acts gathered in memory of Rich were the Fabulous Wailers, the Kingsmen, the Ventures, Larry Coryell, Danny Ward, the Reputations (all horns included), Merilee Rush, Dick Powell, Chris Leighton, Nokie Edwards (who stated: "No, you haven't gotten rid of me yet"), KJR DJ Dick Curtis and a host of guest artists the likes of which have never been seen on a Seattle stage. All voiced their memories of Rich and many played songs in tribute. Maybe more shows will come of this. I think maybe Rich would have liked that idea...

What ever happened to a drummer named (John Augustino) I watched him at the Hippodrome in Federal Way, in the late 60's. I don't remember that bands name. I was 12 or 13. I would also like to know whats up with the Blood brothers, Les Carlson, John Morton. John (thanks for getting Vendetta to play Zappa's Call any Vegetable, at our school dances. I hope you guys are all still playing music. I was a neighborhood kid who lived very close to Les Carlson's house in FW, by St. Vincent de Paul Catholic school.I would show up at times and basically be a pest. I still play guitar a bit and you guys are why I ever tried at all. I remember seeing the Blood, Todd and Brain poster around FW and it was great to see it on your site. I graduated with Jennifer Todd, FW class of 73.Seems like another lifetime now.
Again , thanks

Comments: This is a long shot but here it goes!
I was born in Walla Walla, Washington and was put up for adoption April 20, 1967. My attempts to find my birth mother have failed, she does not want to meet me. The only information she would give to an intermediary about my birth father is that he was in a band at that time. I am assuming my birth father was playing in Walla Walla or maybe was even from there.

Like I said before I know this is a long shot but if you have any information or know of ANY member of ANY bands playing in 1967 that could have had a child conceived around July or August of 1966, ANY information, I would be more than THRILLED to know!
Thank you so very much for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Sincerely and TRULY "a lost child" Michele

Comments: I had the good fortune of playing bass for Lonestar Cattle Company for a short time in the Okanagan. I became very good friends with both Buzz Byers and Gaylord Woods. Gaylord played fiddle on two of our McQueen albums. I recently left McQueen, but I will never forget my GREAT times with Gaylord and the rest of the gang. By the way, I played a gig last summer in the okanagan for a reunion of "Prime Time". Sheldon Scott (Lonestar's drummer) was the drummer. We had a great time reminiscing about the old days. I will certainly miss GAylord!
