This group was together from 1961 to 1965 and backed groups such as Buddy Knox and the Marvells during their heyday.

I'm Frosty Billingsley, a past member of The Toggeries in Bellingham from 1961-1965.

I was with The Toggeries from beginning to end; I wasn't just a member of the 1961-62 Toggeries.  One of the founding members of the band was Bruce Rettig. Ray Guyll played Saxophone with us in the later years.  To ensure that my memories are accurate, I have checked this out with Bill Boyd who was also a band member throughout the years

It is difficult to try to distinguish between the 1961-62 Toggeries and the 1963-64 Toggeries as there was really no single  point in time at which the band changed substantially.

I was recently told about the "Bands of the Great Pacific Northwest" site and had a look. Fantastic!  It's really great that you and the Regents are doing this.
