Out of Portland, Oregon between 1966-'67, we called ourselves the Hardtimes... all jr. High kids.  We only played a handfull of gigs.  I played Farfisa organ; Paul Kaza, bass; Jerry ?, guitar; and we had rotating drummers.  I remember playing the Oregon State Fair on the same afternoon that the Yardbirds played there in some big barn-like structure.  We missed them because we played at the same time of the day.
