Trisha Nerney, August 2007
The band, ragtag as it was, performed it's final engagement at "Village West" in Birch Bay, Wa. and I'll never forget the adventures of this "almost famous" band. The club was located close to a "NORAD" military site, and every 45 seconds a loud "Whirr" came through the PA even with "low-pass" filters installed!
At breaktime, a "stormtrooper" policeman burst into the dressing room, which was located to the far side of the stage, fortunately, so most of the band members hid the contraband.....hmmm....except Gary. He was hauled away not to be seen again that evening.
The band played on, with Kayla on drums, and "Louie-Louie" "Gloria" and any song we could pull off was done.
That was the last time the group played, and after loading into separate vehicles, we all went off in different directions---some to fame, others to oblivion, others to continue with music to the present day.
