In Memory of

Clyde Heaton

The Dimensions played the PNW from 1965 – 1968.

The original group was comprised of Joe Villa, Ron Villa, Clyde Heaton, Lee Dark and Bill Hoack. We later added Valerie Rosa as another singer to the group for a short while.

We recorded the hit song She’s Boss in 1966.  It reached #7 on KJR’s Fab 50 and went national on the Hanna Barbera label…only heard it was #1 in Tampa FL (weird).

The Dimensions played as back up band to headliner Paul Revere and Raiders at the Coliseum in about 1967 and Target Ballroom to Sony and Cher (when their hit song ‘I Got You Babe’ was recorded).

The group played many times at Lake Hills Roller Rink, Parkers Ballroom and the Target in Burien…as well as played every High School, every university/college and every smaller dance halls throughout the state of Washington and Oregon…some in Idaho and was a regular at the Battle of the Bands in Vancouver BC (circa 1966 – 1968).
