Two Old Friends Come For A Visit

"THE GALAXIES" Pictured from left to right are - Terry Gunderson, Don Smith, Danny Pawlak and Bruce Novak.

Tobin and Don Smith in my Indiana front yard. What a great time we had during this visit. We talked about all those good old days of us playing music, remembering special stories and having a few beers. Don played lead guitar in the band after Ron Lane left. Before joining my band, Don was the lead guitarist in "The Galaxies", a well known Chicago band that played a lot of record hops and ballrooms. Other members of their band were, Danny Pawlak, Bruce Novak and Terry Gunderson. Don now lives in Billings, Montana.
This is Tobin and Danny Pawlak. Danny, who lives in Illinois, played drums in the band the times Norby King couldn't make the show. He is best known for being the drummer for "The Galaxies", a popular Chicago band in the late 50's and early 60's. Danny, thanks for keeping the beat.
