A band called Paul Bearer and the Hearsemen played in Cottage Grove, Oregon, back in '65.  One thing I remember the most was they were the ugliest band ever, but very good.  They stood on their amps for the last tune and rocked out.

Peter Brown is still active in the Skagit County.  He plays lots of Country Swing, hooked up with Skagit Community Band, the Skagit  Symphony, and North Cascades big band.  He gets called for gigs around here.
