Ken Elhard & Express
Next up on the local hit parade. A slice of modern soul from Tacoma, Wa. 1977. I found Ken through some slight detective work and was provided with the following information. Their band Express was formed in August 1976 with Rick Thompson on Guitar and vocals. Steve Cox on Drums and vocals. Ken himself on Keys and vocals. They then added Greg Buhre on horns, Mike Meyerdick and Terry Toperke on Bass. In February of 1977 they hit the studio and tracked "Free Spirit". The band then toured up and down the West coast for the next two years and disbanding in 1979. "Free Spirit" was the only record they ever did.
