Southern Country Rock n Roll
Allan Lowe-lead singer and acoustic guitars
Gregg McMillan-bass guitar and vocals
Mike Chasteen-lead guitars and vocals
Jeff Sims-lead guitars and vocals
*Noteworthy: in 1982-83 Allan Lowe, Jeff Sims, Steve Nelson and Mike Turpin form as "Contender" playing locally in Gainesville. Ironically they are 3/5 the original band and have more of the original sound with Allan on vocals. At the same time Gregg McMillan, Mike Chasteen, Robert Simpson and Bruce Parker are continuing playing as "The Desperados" in a less "Country Rock" more "Rock" style.
The original Band reunites for a New Years Eve gig at "Harmonica Joes".
