I was a member of a band, "The Vikings", from West Richland, WA during the years 1965 thru 1967.   We not only played in numerous community venues, but also won first place in the Tri-Cities Water Follies Battle of the Bands competition in 1966.   We played during intermissions for a few "big name" bands such as Don and the Goodtimes and The Sonics when they played at the Richland Roller Rink.
