Here Is Something Ken Paxton Organist / Vocalist wrote about his time as a member of THE DOMINIONS:

The Dominions were formed in 1964 when I started at the University of Oregon. We were a basic hard rock group that made up for lack of quality vocals with a very driving rhythm. We were probably the most popular band in the Eugene area for over three years. Our one single, "I Need Her", is still selling on E-bay and was the best selling record in Oregon for several months, until we ran out of copies. The first two weeks we released the record we far outsold all other records, including the release of the Monkey's "Last Train to Clarksville". One of our claims to fame was a performance at the U of Oregon Student Union where a dancer, on top of my speaker system, took her top of during the show. She was behind me so I couldn't see what she was doing. All I could see was the crowd really loved what we were doing!!!! I thought it was the music but the school quickly closed us down. We made all the papers for a few days until she left town with her boyfriend, who drove an ambulance with two tiger cubs in it.
It was a fun time and the band members enjoyed being with each other, We still maintain contact and actually had a twenty year reunion a few years back. We thought we sounded ok until we saw the video tape!! I focused the Dominions on being a show band. I played the organ laying on my back or with the guitar player sitting on my shoulders, we danced on stage with audience members, switched instruments during a song and had squirt gun fights during performances. The idea was to have fun and get the audience into the action.
