This band relocated to Seattle from San Francisco back in the early to mid 70's.  They got my name off the Seattle American Federation of Musicians job board when their bass player decided to go back to San Francisco for a pharmacy job.  It was a rock/blues band playing dances, parties and such.

We rehearsed in a house one block from Roosevelt High School on NE 65th.
