|In 1965 we
Pat Mason, legendary booking agent and skating rink owner, to book us.
We began a six-year relationship that took us to nearly every teen club
and dancehall across the NW. That man had so many contacts. He
so many gigs for us that we were all rivaling our parents' incomes.
In 1966 Pat booked us as Dick & Dee Dee's ("The Mountains High") band for a NW tour. We went on to 6 tours with them and they became lifelong friends. Dick St. John wrote "Sunshine Day" for us which we went on to record at Bobby Gibson's Ripcord Studio in Vancouver, and released on Mason's Lavender Records.
In 1966 Mason booked us as openers for a west coast tour with Paul Revere and The Raiders and the Syndicate of Sound ("Hey Little Girl") 10 dates in all. This was the only real peek we had at the "big time" but what a gas it was. This was also the time we stopped wearing matching uniforms on stage and dumped the clean cut image we exhibited for so long.
Our most profitable and enjoyable gigs were at the Smith Center, a dancehall formed from the old Smith Bakery in our hometown of Longview,
other bands were booked by Barry Morrill, brother of Kent Morrill, the
B3 Man and leader of the Wailers.
