Then came the full time professional years. 1979 saw us on the road with the last "STEEL COUNTRY SHOW BAND". Our first bus, "ETTIE", named after one of our most ardent fans. This group consisted of Kirk Steel (piano/guitar), James Gillard (bass/vocals) John Green (lead guitar/vocals) Ken "Captain Good Vibes" Ramsey (drums) and Donna and me.
