Ticket Back To Georgia (Lyrics by Steve Huston)
Centralia is the birth place of original TimeAtions and Head East drummer Steve Huston. And the nearby communities of Carlyle, Salem, Woodlawn, and Mount Vernon are where some of the other members lived and attended school. During the concert, Head East Leader and Keyboardist Roger Boyd quipped, "We knew that we had made it big as the TimeAtions in the late 60's when we began playing the Centralia Swimming Pool on Tuesday and Thursday nights."
A few songs into the set, Boyd brought Steve Huston on stage to sing Fly By Night Lady/ City of Gold and Gettin' Lucky.
Steve seemed to be enjoying himself on stage and was really getting into the music by dancing and swaying and interacting with the others on stage. And he proved that he still has the pipes, providing the vocals that were immediately recognizeagble as the vocals on the albums. When Boyd quizzed Huston on stage about the writing of Gettin' Lucky, Huston replied that the song was inspired by his attempts (mostly unsuccessful) to pick up young ladies at a bar out in L.A. called the Rainbow.
Huston left the stage after singing Gettin' Lucky but would return later to finish the set adding lead and background vocals to Jefftown Creek, Since You Been Gone, Never Been Any Reason, and Elijah.
After the show the fans got to meet and talk with current members Roger Boyd, Rich Creadore, Richie Callison, and Mike Mesey as well as former members Huston, Flota, Riker, and Larry Boyd who are shown in the pictures below.

Biographical Sketch: Steve Huston was born in Centralia, Illinois on 17 November 1949, which makes him a Scorpio and 60 years old in 2009. Steve says, "I can't believe that is my true age, I still feel like I'm in my 30's. Most of Steve's educational pursuits occurred after leaving Head East and he holds a Master's Degree from Goddard College in Vermont and a Post Graduate Degree from the University of London in Great Britain. After a decade of being Chief Engineer at several different recording studios, Steve has been teaching audio at the collegiate level for the past 14 years at the Art Institute of Houston in Texas. He likes to point out that he has been recruited by both the University of Houston and Houston Community College, but likes the Art Institute of Houston and plans to stay there for the foreseeable future.
During the band's run, Steve lived across the river in the city of St. Louis proper, as well as in the suburbs of Ballwin and Ellisville. For a period of time, Steve had an apartment in Los Angeles but didn't like LA living. "too nuts, too crazy," he says, "even for Rock Stars."
Steve is a founding member of the TimeAtions (which became Head East in 1969), but left after the first few years to continue his education. He returned in 1972 and stayed throughout the entire A&M Records period, and one album (Onward and Upward) on Allegiance Records. He says he stayed after the line-up of Boyd, Somerville, Schlitt, Birney, & Huston broke up in 1980 because he still believed in the music. Somerville, Schlitt, and Birney left but Steve and Roger Boyd fought on assembling a new Head East with Tony Gross, Mark Boatman, and former member Dan Odum.
Huston finally retired from the band in 1983.
From time to time, Steve surfaces where Head East is performing and plays and sings with the band. "It's very different, because it's not my idea of Head East", Steve says, "but it's still great fun and a lot of those songs are my songs and I still like to sing them."

For long time fans, one of the most exciting parts of this record is probably the guest appearance by former drummer Steve Huston. Huston left Head East in 1983 but he rejoins his former band on this album to sing lead vocals on a song that he wrote, "Jefftown Creek. Huston sounds great and it's nice to hear him back with the band that he helped to make famous.

Founding member and original Head East drummer Steve Huston has announced that he has retired from his full time Associate Professor position at the Art Institute of Houston. Steve was advanced from "Instructor" to the level of "Associate Professor" after earning 2 Masters Degrees, one from the University of London in 2000 and one from Goddard College in Vermont in 2004. He has served on the college Steering Committee, has been the school's recording studio manager of a 2 million dollar state-of-the-art recording facility, and on several occasions has been the advocate for student Audio majors groups.
Steve has also been voted "Instructor of the Quarter" 5 times by the student body, competing for this honor with more than 150 other Faculty members. He has often had graduates of the school visit his class as guest speakers so his students can hear from "their own kind" who have become successful after completing their degree. Steve says that he has completely enjoyed the last 21 years and looks back with joy and satisfaction. He is leaving the full time position in good hands, as they have a great staff. But Steve won't be gone for long, after a few months off he plans to return to a part-time position teaching the fundamentals of the music business as both a science and a craft.
