GIRL WATCHER! They found a new past time to dwell on...

What are they up to now?

Bass player, Jim Hinnant is a grandfather now! He and his wife, Patsy have always lived in NC. His mother lives with them. Their twin sons, Scott and Shane, are grown with children of their own.

Wayne Pittman has continued with a Marquee Band called The O'Kaysions performing favorite selections from the '60s to '90s throughout the Southeast for club acts, festivals, wedding receptions, high school reunions, company parties, and banquets.

Gerald Toler is the man leaning on the keyboard wearing the big glasses. He played the saxophone. He was the principal of Clayton Middle School in Clayton, North Carolina, back in the late 90's. His wife was a teacher at Clayton High School also in Clayton, North Carolina and if I am not mistaken, they both retired in 2002.(SLW) He was originally from Princeton, N.C., a small town between Smithfield and Goldsboro off US 70 Highway, His younger brother Johnny was quite the basketball player at Princeton High School. (Mark Pittman)

Steve Watson was the origonal drummer. In the album cover, he's the other one with glasses with his arm on the drum.
