Jeff Gyman-guitar

Robert Kosloskie-guitar

Doug Grant-bass

Todd Romick-drums

Vocals over the years: Steve, Jimmy, Dee, Mike and Bander...thanks guys!!!

In 1978, after graduating from high school, we decided to form a band. It started as Robert, Todd and myself. Soon we added Jeff and were on our way. For the approximately 4+ years we were together (in many different forms with many different singers) we opened for bands such as Nantucket, Point Blank, Missing Persons, Axxe and many others. We won many Battle of the Bands and had a PA system that was second to none.

Our band names:

Toys

Arsenal

Axiom

Hard Time

 

*** Wanted: any old pictures,videos or info from Lubbock bands in the 80's...shoot me an emai with attachments and i'll post..***
