Clayton Watson and the Silhouettes were from the Centralia area which is midway between Seattle and Portland. After signing with Pat Mason, the group would mostly appear in Oregon and Southwest Washington supporting some big name rock 'n roll performers, namely Gene Vincent who would take up residence in Seaside, Oregon. When signing with Golden Crest, they were renamed Lord Dent and His Invaders (perhaps because of the doo-wop group), and their release would be on a new label, Shelley, named after Clark Galehouse's daughter. Airplay was scarce, however, maybe because of the anti-rock 'n roll sentiment at the time. They were called Washington's first rock 'n roll band, and were certainly one of the first to make a name for themselves.
