I used to watch Tonto & the Renegades play at Olivet College. Great sound. Lots of fun.

I remember seeing you guys and the Beau-Jens, among other groups from Grand Ledge High. I hung out with Tom's brother Dan riding motorcycles. I remember Jeff....we lived in the same subdivision. Have not been to Grand Ledge in a while. I'm living in Tampa FL on Davis Island now.

My boyfriend, Pony Cook, would like to get in touch with Terry Slocum. They were friends in the mid-70's. I think this is the correct Terry Slocum. Thanks. My email is babbey@wcpss.net. We are living in Raleigh NC.

I don't know how a message like this gets attached to T&TR, but now that I'm here I'd like to share something with you all. On June first our song "Little Boy Blue" was voted into Michigan Rock And Roll Legends as the #14 all time Legendary Rock and Roll song by a Michigan artist. Pretty cool, huh? Check it out at michiganrockandrolllegends.com

I would personally thank all of you who voted for us and our song.

A new picture/sound/video of us has just been added on Michigan Rock And Roll Legends. Go to that site, click the Legendary Songs button and scroll down through all the nominated songs until you get to the inducted songs. Go to number 14 and click the link at the bottom of our write-up. I think they did a really nice job.

And, while you're there vote for us as the band be inducted as well. thanks.
