From Victoria, B.C. this rock group existed between 1967-69.  The group played up and down Vancouver Island and toured through B.C. and Saskatchewan before disbanding.

Tom Middleton went on to a fairly successful solo career (One Night Lovers, Harbor For My Soul, It Wouldn’t Have Made Any Difference).

Jerry Adolphe went on to play with Chilliwack and Jim Byrnes.

Len Knoke played for a number of years in the “Brothers Forbes”, the house band at the Forge in Victoria, Norm Piercy played with Uncle Wiggly's Hot Shoes Blues Band.

Gary Garraway went into teaching.

Gary:- "The band got back together in 1990 for a reunion/fundraising dance for my son's soccer team and then performed together for the next two years before retreating back into the "basement". Len, Tom (who now plays a mean keyboard) and myself get together weekly to have fun with music and may even consider playing publicly again (but only for fun) in the near future.  Norm is currently playing in “Out of the Blues” and Jerry continues to work in Vancouver."
