The Hustlers
Seattle, Washington
1966 - 1967


Carl Anderson ~ Guitar
Mike DeChenne ~ Organ
Jeff Johnson ~ Bass
Jacques Moiterairt ~ Drums

We finished 3rd in the 1966 Teen Fair "Battle of the Bands" behind Jack Horner and the Plumbs.  Our Bass player Jeff was in a motorcycle accident on the way to the final playoffs, so Carl and I had to switch off playing bass, otherwise I think we would have won the contest, really, honest.  Well, Jack are you up for another BATTLE?  Ha Ha!

One of their old recordings, "Dear John", is now available on Vol 3, "Work It On Out", of the Norton Records early NW music series.
