We played our music around the Northwest and Canada for five years. We have recently reunited our band this year, to the delight of ourselves and our "60 some year young" fans, this year and have plans to perform again, sometime in the future.
In 1963, I married Marian Haken, class of 1961. We have two sons and five grandchildren.
When the Gems band broke up in 1965, I went to work for Pay Less Drug and just retired two years ago, after 42 years with Pay Less and Rite Aid. The first 18 years was in advertising and the remainder in management, store manager.
Now that I'm retired from that, I'm able to pursue my art career full time. I have a web sight; jamesreidartist.com.
I first started painting seriously in 1973 and am now a full time artist, living in Boise, Idaho.
