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 three thousand band pages later, Sam is still at it making new or updated pages almost daily. If your 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), or if you have a current or post-1979 NW band, have a member who is listed in one of the bands already on this site, and would like to have that band represented here, please contact Sam, our Web Slave
