Here is the band named RockRidge from Spokane Washington. This band played from 1977 through 1980.  We played at Casey's in Lewiston Idaho and other places such as Gonzaga Prep Auditorium in Spokane.  We also played alot of High School dances in Spokane. We played mostly Blue Oyster Cult, Montrose, Led Zeppelin, Steve Miller Band, Heart just to name a few. We had an entire set of original songs that we dispersed through out the evening. We were extremely loud and aggressive in our style. The Base Guitar player is Kelly Cameron who is pictured on the left, Drums Matt Hines is in the middle and Lead Guitar is Brett Johnson is far right. Originally the three of us were in Ripper. When we were Ripper we rehearsed five nights a week from 5:30 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. Mistakes on stage were none existent.  We enjoyed alot of good gigs at Pullman and EWU's pub.  All of that rehearsal time made RockRidge come together quickly.
