Surprisingly long at this point. Only personnel changes have been drummers: Ed Tibbs to Roger Reid to our current Neal Eatherly. Rob Bird-Robinson has played with the Lonesome Tumbleweeds, as did Rick
Borella. Neal Eatherly has played in many bands, most recently the Duke Mitchell Band, which he fronted. John Wagner played in the Dusty Buds and Joe Bob Frog. Jerry Pike played in the Dim Innuendos and The Poets.
