Comments: I lost my Ballin'jack LP in a devorce back in 1979, (I'll never forgive her for that) I'm so happy to hear they're available on CD. The songs stayed in my head. They rocked my life back in the early 70's and will rock it again on CD.
Thank Them for me

Comments: I hung out will Chance Eden(Jim Neske) in the mid 60s in Rego Park, Queens, NY, where we both lived at the time. He got me my first job in the music biz at Roulette Records in NYC. I lost track of him in the 70s and was just searching around the web when I found this sight. I was really saddened to learn that Jim had passed away. Does anyone know how and where he passed away? I have several of Jim's 45s from Roulette, such a great singer and great guy. I would appreciate anyone who knew Jim to email me. Thanks, CJ

At the time of Elvis' passing he was performing in Vegas and thus assumed the stature as predecessor to The King. He was my friend though I haven't seen him in years.  Would love to hear from him and our former personal manager, Chet Actis.

I had the joy of playing in her band in Vancouver. It was a pretty good band: Alexis Radlin, vocals & guitar; Jerry Doucette, vocals & guitar; Les Law, vocals & guitar; Tom Lavin, vocals & bass; and myself on drums. And we played at 'Rohan's' on 4th Ave. It was one of the best bands I ever played in. Duris Maxwell

Comments: Congratulations Dynamics on making the Northwest Hall of Fame! I'm a former '60 Sealth graduate and was married for 38 years to the Band and Orchestra teacher at Sealth High School - Ray Johnston. Terry and Jeff Afden had him as a music teacher, and he worked with Jerry, Tom, Bob, etc. in many music events. I was student director of The Frolics (the student talent Show) and Chairperson for the dances. I currently am the manager of Ray's dixieland jazz band (Duwamish) since his passing in 1999 at the age of 83. Duwamish Band is celebrating their 25th year in 2005.  I've been over 25 years as the Activities Coordinator at the Senior Center of West Seattle, and would love to host a revival of the Dynamics in mid 2005. The Center will be remodeling starting in January 2005 for at least 6 months. Our future emphasis is in attracting the "baby boomers" and cultivating activities for them.
Someone can contact me if interested.

Comments: Re: Angies comments of 26 September: "Warning: The wailers CD of the original Golden Crest recordings issued by Norton Records (NY) has 4 "demo" recordings at the end that are FAKE. They were not recorded by the WAILERS. Norton also has released the 4 "demos" on a 45EP as 1958 demos by The Wailers: the same FAKES!! How can we get our $$ back?"

The Wailer recordings on this CD are indeed the Wailers. They were recorded by Art Mineo in 1958 BEFORE the famous Golden Crest Recordings. To quote a statement from one of the participants in this release: "it's like saying the Beatles Hamburg tapes are fake because they don't sound like Eleanor
Rigby."

For myself, I recall conversations I personally had with Kent and Buck (of the Wailers) regarding these new releases. Both were somewhat tickled to finally have some of their very early demo material released.

The Norton CD releases are indeed of the Wailers.... The Boys From Tacoma

Comments: Hi again, It's great to see the photos I sent you of Baby Knockers up on your website. I was cleaning out the garage today, and came across something that might interest you. I have 2 cassette tapes of an interview that I recorded with Baby Knockers. This must be from about 1980 - I was probably a senior in high school. My friend Liane Nelson and I met with the band at the bass players house and interviewed them for a series of articles I wrote for the Wilson High School (Tacoma, WA) newspaper. I'd be happy to donate them to you, and maybe it would be fun to put some of the audio on the sight. I listened to the first few minutes, and it's still pretty good quality - very clear.

Allright, back to cleaning out the garage,
Lisa Cooke

When did he leave?  We would appreciate if you had links (name underlined) to their post-Sonics groups such as Bob Bennett linked to Ice & The Barney Armstrong Revue, Andy Parypa linked to that Beach Boys looking group featuring Kingsman Barry Curtis and that rock 'n' roll revival group that still exists today. Why no links?

A great find here is Louie Louie singer Jack Ely looking like Jesus in the Portland Zoo. That's total coolness.

Comments: BUTTERFAT was an excellent band of Wyoming expatriates who moved to Seattle in about 1970 searching for a better climate and a hipper audience. They played a heady brew of rootsy music, derived from blues, country, rock, jug-band, soul and gospel, with an overlay of big-band swing. They were the definition of Americana long before the term was coined. Some members of the band wrote superb original songs as well, and they welcomed a cast of musical characters onstage to embellish the basic unit of two guitars, bass, drums, and organ. Butterfat lived communally on NE 85th Street, just off Lake City Way, with a variety of girlfriends, pets, roadies and loadies. They were the very picture of the 60's stereotype.

The original band as it arrived in Seattle, was led by Cory McDaniel, a fine singer, songwriter and guitarist, with a talent for keeping the bills paid in spite of the others. Lead singer Paul Huber played harmonica and percussion, and was, indeed still is, an exquisite fine artist with an international reputation. He was responsible for the atmospheric graphics used on Betterfat's posters and album covers. Bill Hayes, lead guitarist, also wrote excellent songs and sang with a particularly soulful voice. His seemingly star-crossed life ended before he reached the age of thirty. The rhythm section consisted of Randy Murray on bass and Donny Teesdale on drums.

As the band members became comfortable with the Seattle scene, some personnel changes occurred. Ed Rooney became the bass player, Hank Sondie came aboard with his saxophone, Huber's organ was replaced by the piano of the mysterious Janay Jernberg, who quickly became the spiritual advisor to the group, and David Tate assumed the drummer's throne. All of these guys, with the single exception of Sondie, were Wyomingites! Eventually Spencer Bohren, a musical compadre from Casper, Wyoming, joined as lead singer, percussionist, trombonist and third guitarist, though the band hardly needed another guitarist.

Comparisons were made at the time to bands like The Lovin' Spoonful and Buffalo Springfield, and The Youngbloods and Holy Modal Rounders were part of the band's wacky circle of friends. Butterfat made at least a couple of albums and toured the Pacific Northwest, Northern California and the wide-open spaces of the Old West. Some of the members, Cory McDaniel and Spencer Bohren for sure, continue to share their music with American and European audiences and with each other.

I posted this here, because in my search - this website continuosly comes up, so I thought that maybe someone would be able to assist me in finding this man. For those whom wish to know why...My mother had a one night stand with him, and I may have been the result of that night - I would just like to find him, and then get a DNA test to find out if indeed he is my father.

We competed in the area with the Heats and the Cowboys etc.. I'm not sure how much detail to go into here but all the members of the band have played a lot around the Pac NW. We had Chris Eggerton as one of our drummers, and Rick Burgoine went on to play with the Heats so there is some history there.  Thanks Ed Barbuti

You can check With, 'Ralph-Loren-Tanner'the ''sugerbear'' I don't have a clue how he got that name. guess one had to be there. At any rate, My Bro is digging into his deeply badly buried Tresured Past, and alot of realizations he is adjusting to about the content of the page, He does not have a computer so I am doing it for him. Just another note to theRegents, please check out the now-a-days Ogre, at www.ogrerock.com as I have been in contact with Ross now for about 5-6 months, and another place to checkout for now-a-days music, is www.hellride.com.   Just sharing whats up with the Pacific Northwest Band-Ogre, whom I have gotten them booked Locally and they jumped at the chance to play...by the way, my Bro the drummer, Ace, well, He was 13 years old when he was playing in Bars, During breaks he had to go out the back exits, He hated that. Another Lead singer that played Locally for a short period of time b4 Ralph Loren Tanner, was a musician by the Name of Phil Ansbaugh.

You at the Regents have compiled quite a list...I am going back in there, and see if the bands I was in here, I don't spoze so, everyone had jobs and couldn't travel or Leave the wife for a bar...I don't get to visit my Brother very often, but, when I do, and he has something more to add, I will certainly let you have an update.thankyou ,

Comments: While remembering the great Ray Charles, hero to and inspiration of all singers, songwriters and keyboardists everywhere, I believe he should also get credit for exposing the Wurlitzer electric piano to the world. At least in the Northwest, and probably elsewhere, the Wurlitzer (along with the Magnatone amplifier) became the staple keyboard instrument in just about every band after Ray Charles played one on "What'd I Say" and "Sticks 'n' Stones". In his book "Jackson Street After Hours', Paul de Barros writes that Ray first used a Wurlitzer in Seattle in 1948. This certainly explains Ray Charles' influence on the "Northwest Sound".
Thank you Ray from all of us.

Comments: What a shock!! I was just screwing around and input my own name and, WOW!! Although I was the first to get up on the stage back in- let's just say all those years ago- at the Hillsboro Armory, then we were Theo and The Fabulons. I think the Rialtos were the first group we fronted. We later met up with some good rockers call the Tiki's, and we were suddenly one of the coolest bands in town. I left the group for the Navy in late '64 and missed out on all the recordings (that I know of). I knew the group had gone on but I had no Idea that so many other musicians had been involved. I'm just glad that my name was included. Thanx for remembering, and check my web page.

Comments: This is a wonderful site and I'm afraid I have too many moments and andecdotes to share in this small space. I will try over time to fill in a few blanks regarding bands with whom I had the pleasure of supporting in one way or another. I would like to express my sorrow regarding the passing of several great musicians. I suppose it is the inevitable end for the rock n roll boomers, but each new name, the most recent for me being Tony Winslow who I knew as a young teenager, strikes me as a singular loss. A loss of the exuberance found only in the blues/rock metphor. I will continue to visit this wonderful site for it reminds me of exciting and hopeful times as well as painful ones. My best to all....John

Comments: Bruce Kirkman, now there is a name I remember. Seem to recall you playing bass in my living room in the old Den of Iniquity on Garden street. Remember Gail and Terry Clements? And of course, Jack, with that big sound he developed, with hiw own subleties. I found him at the guitar-etc. shop in Fremont a few years ago. Haven't seen Jerry Dawson for a while but have chatted with Steve Calahan. I was a nobody but loved the music, hung out at the Web a lot, searched for mushrooms for medicinal purposes, provided a lot of smoke and beer for jam sessions when Scott Finley and Steve Johnson and I lived in the Den. Lived in Fairhaven later, sucked up the 25 cent beer that Rex and Marion served at the Kulshan. I remember the Condon twins well, Rich and Mike. And their brother Chris. Where are they now? This is a great site. I like what you're doing. I have the website above as the history of Skagit county and the northwest. I returned to Sedro-Woolley as Kathi McDonald returned to Mount Vernon. I actually babysat for her when she was a giggling teenybopper. But that's another story...
Peace out.

Comments: Very cool sight. I was a huge Hi-Fi fan and still keep in touch with David Surkamp as he still plays in the St. Louis area. I managed the Peaches Records & Tapes store in the U-district from 1977 thru 1984 and working with the many local bands was a real pleasure. We tried to always support the wealth of area talent by having a large NW record section in the store, having instore concerts, and promoting local releases on our outdoor sign. I'm sorry I moved away just as the grunge scene took over, because I love that music also, but I'm glad I got to experience such bands as Hi-Fi, Reddress, Allies, Jitters, Next Exit and many many more.  Hi-FI was the cream of the crop and still holds up on the turntable. They were one of the best bar bands I have ever seen in 28 years in the music biz.  If you like Hi-Fi, check out www.skintightband.com. They are another great local band (local to my area)with a slightly Surkampish sound. Anyway, cool sight on NW bands and I love to relive those many good times and memories.

Comments: I said yes to having my band listed,,,,but,74-76 i was playing with Wayne marshall.77-79 it was the Johansen bros.Around 80-81 I played with little bill at the mint.The 80's was spent trying to clean up but played with Isaac Scott a bit.In the late 90's I started getting out and jammin' alot with bill and that turned me back to the blues and Isaac once again.Also at that time,I played with the Pat Gossan Project AKA THE VUDUDES,but since Isaac pasted on I have not played much.Right now I am laying low and slow.Oh yeah,Somewhere back in that black-out of the 70;s I played with a band called EZ MONY,featuring Nancy Claire on vocals.

Comments: Hello
I am searching for a member of a band call the Dappers that used to play in a bar called the Grotto in Lewiston, ME back around 1959. Any information as to who owned this bar at that time or anyone who might know the band or one of their friends would be very much appreciated. The member I am looking for is Sonny (Albert) Chambers. I have been told the bar no longer exists but there must be some record of it in the city hall records. I believe you it was very close to the river on 202 but I am not sure of that.  I would also think that at least one member of the band would have had to supply their SS# for tax reasons. Any help locating Sonny or any of the band members would be very helpful to me.
Thank you in advance for you help!

Comments: I was doing some looking around for my recently passed dear friend Lynn Ware of Renton.  He was one of my best friends and opened me to a whole new world of music and started me on the road to play bass guitar.  Lynn passed away on Thursday, March 18th after a long and hard battle with cancer. His daughter Tamara was at his side when he left us.  We all knew he was a great musician but never to the extent that we are sadly finding out now. Ever humble, he never let on about his music career and his love of playing the saxophone.  Tamara misses him dearly and I do too. I can only hope that I can find out more about him from former band members for Tamara's sake.
Goodbye my friend, we all miss you.

Did You Have A 1954-1979 NW Band?: Yes
Comments: Our band is listed in the San Francisco bay area garage band's in the 60's. I was the Keyboard player in "Peter Wheat and The Breadmen" band. And we played all over the bay area with a lot of big named group's. Paul Revere and the Raider's, The Turtles, Bobby Fuller Four, "Van Morrison w/Them", The Grass Root's, The Love, just to name a few. We almost had a shot with the Rolling Stones in SF but didn't quite make the cut. Had lot's of fun in those day's. Also played keyboard for "The Harbinger Complex" when they first started out. We cut two record's while I was in Peter Wheat. "Baby What's New" and "All the Time". Got some pretty good air time too but never quite made the big time. Lot's of memories and one hey of a ride I'll tell ya.

My name at the time was Linda Patterson formerly married to keyboard player Jim Hendricks. Garey Williams was my drummer, Mike Mattingly on guitar and Mike Doll rhythm guitar and bass. Bruce on sax. I played bass.  I've sat in with, Greasewood several times, Lucky Pierre, Nash Band members Randy Hiner, and Tom Stinson were in MoonDance for a while. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. I married in 1982 and moved back to Colorado. I'm now living in Colorado and have a band called the Alleluia Blues Check us out at www.lindastorey.com I will be coming to Ellensburg this June and would love to reunite with some of the many players I've worked with.
