During the summer of 1969, the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) contracted three local bands to play a series of dances. The organizer asked me to arrange publicity photos for all three bands in May of that year.  Influenced by the cover of the first Paul Butterfield Blues Band album, I suggested that we stage the photos in front of George's Coney Island Cafe located on North First Avenue in Yakima.  We did the individual band photos then got everyone together for a group portrait (above) of all three of these bands... Time Exit, Green Rain and Phat.  These bands played the Downtown and other venues around Yakima during the late 1960s.
