Benny and the BK's...  BK's stands for Butt Kickers.  This was an all American Indian band (except for me on keyboards and sometimes lead vocals) from Tacoma.   The band leader, lead guitar player, and lead singer was Puyallup Tribal member Ben George.   The other members of the band were: David Littleraven on rhythm guitar, Al Zantua on Bass, and Jonathan White on Drums.

The photo was taken in Kilworth Chapel at the University of Puget Sound.
