In 2008 three friends got together to play a few tunes and share some music time. Billy Maguire, Bob Bayles and Sam Albright had known each other since the 1970s when they were students at Central Washington University. Sam had played with Leah Shelton in a band called Rusty Bucket and asked Leah if she would like to sing in this new band. They all got together and Better Day was on it’s way. Better Day has three fine albums so far with Billy, Bob and Sam working on solo projects in 2018 and getting together to play when possible.
