  The guys were too young to play the club scene since they were school aged themselves. They did play allot of High School dances, and this was common in Chatham in the late 1960’s

  Raymond Violot went to University but remained active in the music community as a music teacher, a member of the Musicians Union Board, the Chatham Concert Band, and several local talented bands. Raymond sings and plays several instruments, a few of which are the flute, Stand up Bass, harmonica, banjo and piano.

Randy would go on to play in several bands including the popular local group “Friends”.
