 Seafire 112 - On Broadway/Get Clean Nitesounds 1965

One of the best bands in the 60's was the Nite Sounds with I believe Luther Raab and Paul Goldsmith.  This band was like the house band at the Tolo House in downtown Seattle

Tim Coleman, November 2003

The Nite Sounds band of 1960 - Michael Riccetti    I was the originator and named the band as well.  I played keyboards. Graduated from Cleveland High School in 1960.

Michael Riccetti, February 2005

The drummer was my brother, Bill Leyritz.  I sold Paul Goldsmith his first guitar in 1958.  They were a good band.  I always thought they could make it big.
