The band rehearsed in the social hall of the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Phoenix Arizona. We developed our following from a combination of church youth and local area High School students. The line-up was not as much of a rotating door as might appear from the changes shown. Paul Downey left the group for college out of state. Robbie Satenspiel left later for the same reasons later.
