The band was founded and fronted by Mark Gallagher (Fragile Lime, Blue Mountain Eagle, etc.).

It was a short lived group Mark put together after auditioning a number of local Seattle musicians.

The group consisted of Mark; Dave Smith (A Boy & His Dog, Pulse, etc) on Bass;  Bobby Anderson (Bighorn) on drums; Ed Vance (Jessie, Showbiz, and later Freddie Pink, Jerry Miller Band, etc) on Hammond B-3; and John Schneider (Kryptic Light, Uncle Remus, Blizzard, Olde Friends, Pulse, Jessie, Shirley Lorraine's Rush Hour, etc) on Lead Guitar.  Denny Goodhew joined later on Saxes.

My recollection is that the band was formed and gigged in '73.  All of us were in other groups in '70-'72.
