At the age of 14 years old, Gene Morris started his musical career by playing drums for his father's band, the famous Gene Morris Trio. Gene's father played with the Lionel Hampton Band in the late '40s. He also played in the inauguration of President Truman, and was the first black man on the Down Beat Magazine for being the best tenor saxophone player in 1949.
Gene Jr., as he is referred to, later joined Gene Williams and Fresh-playing engagements at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and other various hotels and clubs. He then joined the famous Buck Ram Platters on a cross country tour. He performed at the Executive Inn in Buffalo, the Newport Beach Hotel in Miami, the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, and the Maxim in Las Vegas.
After the tour, Gene returned home to Sacramento and put together an explosive band called Morris Code. Morris Code played in Sacramento for the Wolfman Jack Productions.

"Its all about the music", states Arnold "Rhythm and Blues" Mejia, one of Fresno's leading guitarists. His long-standing love affair with this art form began when he was in the sixth grade in Malaga Elementary school's marching band.
He has learned to play all styles, but his pleasure is the rhythm and blues style his oldest brother introduced him to. His playing ability made him one of the leaders in Fresno's Latin Rock Movement in the '70's and '80's.
Arnold Mejia has always played in bands that were in demand. He remains highly respected in the field by other musicians.
