One of the co-founder of the band
With his brother Lolly, he is also the co-founder of the band in 1969 after they had a almost ten year long successfull career in Los Angeles under the name of Pat & Lolly Vegas.
Born in 1941, Pat was the main composer, singer of the band. He is also an amazing bass player with a very unique style, very rythmic and profound sense of rythm and energy
Pat is the one who kept the flame alive through the years and is still playing with the band with new musicians
Pat and Redbone were honored during the Native American Music Awards 2008.
Pat was inducted into the Hall Of Fame with special honors at Seneca Niagara Casino, Niagara Falls, New York.
In october 2017 I had the chance to meet Pat and Acela in Los Angeles. These were a few fantastic moments, sharing humor, thoughts and being even invited to record one of their "Chance to Have it All" radio shows. You can listen it here.
