It was 1974, in the town of Columbus, Indiana when Purple Mist formed as a Jr. High School band made up of Dave Sanders, Doug Evans, Chuck Abbott and Andy Bierlein, all 8th graders at Columbus' Central Jr High School. The band continued to evolve, changing some members through High School and then dissolving in 1978.
40 years later, at the Columbus North/Columbus East Class reunion, the old band reunited and added talent--Alan Eddelman, Gary Kincer and Micah Williams--as the band Glory Daze.
Having so much fun preparing for and playing at the reunion, the group decided to continue on, changing its name to Kickitlester. The band's objective is to play a variety of cool songs, raise the spirit of its audience and most importantly, have fun!
Note: The gentleman in the cowboy hat and bath robe is the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Artimus Pyle.
