Morning After did a combination of originals and cover music.  They had a unique two-guitar harmony sound with great fills from keyboards.  They played throughout the Northwest college and club scene.  They opened for such acts as BB King Nils Lofgren, Sons of Chaplin, The Baby's and Sugarloaf.  They had a great run through the 1970's

I was the guitarist for the Portland band Morning After from 1974 to 1978. I ended up in a version of the Iron butterfly.
