Biography

Formed in the late autumn of 1965, the group lasted until 1967, but not without member losses along the way. The original drummer, Jon Keliehor departed in the early summer of 1967 and guitarist Doug Hastings was taken into the Buffalo Springfield, and then into the supergroup Rhinoceros. New members replaced old but their stay was short lasting as the band played it’s last performances December 1967.

Their journeys from Seattle to San Francisco and then to Los Angeles brought considerable attention as they played in the ballrooms of Haight Ashbury and the cultural club scene of Sunset Strip.

They were hugely respected by musicians they shared the stage with, which would include groups such as The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead, Country Joe and the Fish, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Turtles, Taj Mahal, Steve Miller Band, Grass Roots and many others. However by the end of 1967 their direction had become uncertain.
