In Memory of

Steve Ekman

Dennis Fagaly is now living in San Jose but originally one of the kids in my neighborhood in Vancouver, WA.  My cousins are Danny and Freddie Lackaff. Danny lives with his sister on a farm in New York State and Fred lives in Cannon Beach, OR

Bill Martin, August 2004

"Phang" was a nickname for original bass player Dennis Fagaly, who wrote a number of the songs that ended up on the band's LP, including "Lazy Living", but left before they cut the album.  He plays on their 45 released in 1966 on DOT.  Dennis settled in Berkeley, CA, where he continues to reside.
