The Peace Navy #1
(Fall 1989)

Every October San Francisco holds an event for the Navy and Marines known as "Fleet Week". The Peace Navy (info and info) runs concurrently with Fleet Week. The Peace Navy is a flotilla of anything that will float on the bay decorated with protest signs. The HAFB played for two of these events from the back of a sail boat.

Players at the first Peace Navy gig were: Nick, David, Rick, Pat, Ernst Martin on Bass and Tim Parkhurst on Drums. Maya shot video.
