The Fabulous Wailers Concert for Kent Morrill (82 Photos)

Musical luminaries from around the Northwest - Steve Peterson, Neil Andersson, Gail Harris, Jerry Miller, Jim Manolides, Freddie Dennis, Jumpin' Jim Wallace, Barry Curtis, Merrilee Rush, Jeff Kathan, George Barner, Gerry Roslie and on and on - joined Buck Ormsby and ALL the members of the Fabulous Wailers on the Temple Theatre stage before packed dance floor Wednesday, May 4 for a free tribute concert for Kent Morrill, lead singer and keyboard player for seminal Tacoma garage-rock band the Fabulous Wailers, died on April 15 after a long battle with colon cancer. Many of those dancing were the same faces who use to dance in front of the same musicians during the famous rock 'n' dance parties O'Day and others threw in the late '50s and early '60s.
