The Nitemates evolved into Taxi in the late- 60's and Redline in the mid-80's.

Update: The Nitemates rocked the West Seattle HS Class of ’65 40th reunion, Aug 6th, 2005 along with my good friends Kent Morrill and Buck Ormsby of the Fabulous Wailers.  It was a great party of 225 classmates and spouses.  The Nitemates have played the 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40th WS class of ’65 Reunions, and look forward to many more. A special thanks to Tim Coleman, the newest Nitemate, and formerly of the Bishops and Nomads for his great contribution.
