In Memory of

Cal Leo

This group started in the mid 60's with Geary Lewis as lead singer. Geary was replaced by Ken Onstad.  At some point Ken was replace by Steve Bielman.  Tom was replace by Rick Highsmith.  Buddy was replaced by Cal Leo.  Rex was replaced by Darrell Selvig.  When I left in "69 the group changed it's name to "Grace" (or was it Virgin Grace ?)

We played many high school and frat dances.  We played clubs like TG's (Albany), The Exit (Salem) The Second City (Corvallis). Our biggest night was as opening act for Buffalo Springfield when they played Corvallis early in their career.

I recall that we started the band with the name of The Livin' End and were such when we played opening for Buffalo Springfield.
