Grand Rapids 1967 – Bill Van Ess (Bass)
From Bill Von Ess (June 2004) www.GrandRapidsRocks.com
I had a band in 1967 but we never made it out of the basement. However, I still have a recording of us doing 5 songs. My band was called “The Days Light” but I’m sure that nobody would have heard of us as we never played out anywhere. The songs that I have a recording of are “I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night”, “Little Black Egg”, “Steppin’ Stone”, “Louie, Louie” and “Wipeout”. My band consisted of Pete Rayto on lead guitar, Mickey Fowler on Rhythm guitar and me Bill Van Ess on drums. We didn’t have a bass player while I was in the group.

Read about your band on the Grandrapidsrocks site. If you still have recordings, I would LOVE to hear them. Please write back with more info.
