In 1990 I retired from active playing and started doing church music.  My wife and I were continually putting together shows and events for our church and pretty soon we discovered a couple of players that were of the same mind set for playing and we've been playing every since under numerous names, but not doing the club scene.

Then they stopped smoking in the clubs and started doing off night jams. Tim Hall, Billy Farmer had and has all these off night jams sessions and I started playing again in that venue.  I decided to try it again with the guys I have been playing with for the last 15 or so years.  It has been fun once again, and friends from the past will come out and play with us as they always did.  It has kind of come full circle.

We are working on a web site and newsletter, and are booked as much as we want to be.  Lately we are booking through Arrowwood Productions. (253) 332-1108 in case you need a number.

I'm liking it better this time around without all the old distractions, with better sounding gear.  I still say give me the money, but we are doing it mostly just for the fun of it.  If you happen to see us in the paper, or on our soon coming web site come on out and have a Pleasant Head evening.  It is music you know from the 50's to the present and we do pretty good if I do say so myself, and after 35 years or so I do say so.  Come out and see for yourself.
