All the band members had vocal parts.  Prior to The Heaters (which came from the fact their rehearsal space had a space heater) Keith was in a band called Daily Planet; Ken was in Goliath, Steve was in The Moberlys and Tyson Riff, and Don (from Mercer Island) was also in a previous band.

After the breakup of The Heats...Ken became an event planner; Steve created the Rangehoods; Wayne went into Maurice and the Clichés; Don created Living at Large.  Keith eventually started The Elementaries.

The band has reunited.  The current lineup is Keith & Steve, guitar; Wayne, bass; and Ken on drums.  Wayne and Ken reside in California, which makes the gigs very special if you consider the scheduling conflicts and travel time.
