When all the groups were featuring bus pictures on albums, we found this burned out school bus for our shot. 1973
Same bus, different angle. Dave Clemmons had joined the group as a drummer.
Jesus Music was a collection of songs written by members of the Chords. A very contemporary collection.

1976 - We brought out all the instruments for a variety filled show. Strings, horns, keyboards
A rare Chords configuration. To expand our reach into the "convention market" we added our wives to perform selected shows. These lovely ladies added beauty to the group. Linda & Bonnie Jo
Bonnie continued to play keyboard and sing into 1977 on selected shows.
August 16, 2013 - The first time we were all together in many years. What a great reunion. We even sang a song or 2.
