There never was a band member named William Esmond. The band was named after the street crossing of our rehearsal space. The corner of Williams Ave. and Esmond St. in Burnaby. This led to an unforseen problem as on one more than one occasion our band check was made out to “William Esmond”.   The band played a mixture of R&B and classic rock.We played a number of casual and club gigs before calling it quits in 1990.

Some of the other Pacific Northwest music groups represented in this band include: The New Breed, Main Squeeze, Nightwatch, and many other NW bands.
