(3/15/09) Hey to all you Abbey fans. Hope all is well. Today our lives have been changed forever.. This is very personal for me but, the Abbey family has lost a cherished member. Sammy Morales… One would have never thought such a shining star could fade.. I cant tell you how much this hurts all of us. But, Sam is in a better place now. And most of all he is not suffering anymore. Sam was a caring, honorable, and great man. Not only to me but, to everyone he met.. Thanks to everyone that has supported us and Sam over the years. I can tell you from the bottom of my heart he appreciates every single one of you. His voice may be gone but, it will live on… In our ears.. and in our hearts. I promise you that. Sammy WE LOVE YOU!!
Organ donation is at a all time low. My dad didnt get his chance but, become a donor. And save a life. We will continue to honor Sam by promoting donor education. Click the image below for more info:

Bio: Original members include Rick Kotara, Denis Kotara, Sammy Morales, Kurt Warnken, Shorty Heinsohn, Jerry Teltschik, and Jeffery Teltschik. The band formed around 1970 and quickly became one of the biggest bands to hit south Texas. Setting attendance records and didn’t stop putting on great shows until 1981. In 1991 and 1992 the universe opened up and gave us the 1st reunion dances. Now, in 2006 the moon and stars have lined up once again, keeping the music alive!
I could say alot about the band and go on and on. But, In short..(maybe)..I started working on their music for my dad Sammy about…5 years ago..I could be off.. But, It first started as a Christmas gift and has turned into so much more.. More than I ever dreamed.. Now we are here and with a technology twist we are going to have CD’s, etc. available and the band is going to play again!! Stay tuned as I am going to be adding more to the site.
