The Wes Houston band, about 1980. Wes must have a lyric somewhere about a cold wind blowing through, 'cause that's what happened to the band. Wes fired the manager, the drinking age went up from 18 to 21 (which emptied out the bars we played in virtually overnight), disco and punk transformed the musical landscape, the economy went into a serious recession, and the band's bass chair became a revolving door. Note the radical change in looks, particularly Joey and I sporting short hair and skinny ties. Hoo wee, indeed. Left to right: Larry Sheeba (bass), Douglas baldwin (guitar), Joey Piazza (drums), Wes Houston (guitar, vocals), George Christ (harmonica), Marc Jay (keyboards).
