Planet was a party band.  They mostly did covers but some Marl Riley originals, too.   "PLANET" played many shows at the famous "Old Mill Tavern" in Bothell and "Somewhere Else" in Bellevue. One particular evening at the "Somewhere Else", a pyrotechnic effect (very ground breaking stuff), caught a wall on fire and.....well, the rest is history.
