Sorry I am so late. I just found this site a couple of months ago.

When I attended Lincoln High from 1964 to 1967 there was a group who drove a hearse called the Morticians. Very good group as they played at many school dances.
I was the drummer for a group called the Nowhere Men from 1964 to 1968. We played quite a few gigs on the Peninsula.
I remeber we played a gig once at Patty Poole's house around 1966. I think we got it through her friend Cathy Cleary who I was acquainted with. Can't remember what the occasion was. Beautiful old house.

We practiced at my friend George's place on 26th and Judah
or in the family room of our house at 35th and Rivera.

We were all reunited many times this year as we all celebrated our 60th birthdays. Our lead singer was the baby
as he will be 60 next year. Must be another party brewing.
Paul has recorded a few Cds in the last few years. Still has a great voice.
