In Memory of

Julio Ramierz

My brother, David Torgerson, played the organ with The Techniques in the early 60’s.  I recall them having band practice in the basement of our house in White Center.  Kim Kimbal was their lead singer.  I also recall they played at the Tacoma Armory where Eric Burdon and the Animals were on the program that same night.  I was with them so had the privilege of meeting some of the band members of the Animals.   Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos.
