Dan Faller, March 2007

They've reunited at least twice to play Prairie Days in their home town of Nezperce.  They had a great sound when the three of them, Jon, Mark and Larry (my father-in-law) sang together, even just a few years ago

Besides the Torquays, there were two lovely ladies who sang backup, and were - as far as I know - always billed seperately as The Torquettes.  They were:  Lyla Anderson and Dina Huff.
