Thank you for visiting our Web Site.

     Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Band pages.  Here you will find a collection of  OVER ONE THOUSAND Pacific Northwest bands that existed between 1954 and 1979.  There are also NW bands from 1980 to present that had or have as its members, musicians and vocalists who had their early music roots thoroughly entrenched in the early days of Pacific Northwest music from 1954 to 1979. 

     This site was created through the collective efforts of the Northwest musicians, their friends and fans.

     The creation of this website was an accident.  What was originally intended to be about one or two dozen band tribute pages added to The Regents of Tacoma website to pay tribute to the bands playing in the Pacific Northwest with the Regents in the early to mid-1960's got a little out of hand.  No sooner would our webmaster (Sam) finish one page, then one or more of the musicians in that band would ask Sam if he would make a page for their other band.  Well, over one thousand band pages later, Sam is still at it making new or updated pages almost daily.  If you band is not represented in this collection, it is because you haven't submitted the information, not because Sam "missed" you.

If you had or have a NW band that had members from the early days of Pacific Northwest music (1954 - 1979), and would like to have that band represented here, please contact Sam,

Sam doesn't get paid to do this, so if you ever run into him, feel free to buy him a beer.  If you prefer, you can always make a $$ donation via PayPal to help keep the site running (not tax deductible).  Just click on the PayPal logo.
