Victor Aloysius Meyers was born in mid -1898 as the 15th of 16 children in Little Falls, Minnesota. Vic's father was County Treasurer for Morris County, Minnesota, a position he held for 30 years. When the family moved West to Oregon in the mid-'teens, Vic started on a musical career. He could play violin, but by the age of 18, he was a drummer in a three piece group that played each summer at Seaside, an ocean resort. At 21, in 1919 he got a two year contract to play with a full size band in the Rose Room in Seattle’s Hotel Butler, located at the corner of 2nd Avenue and James Street. Its construction started around 1900 and when it opened it "immediately became the jewel in the City’s crown. Its lavish Rose Room grill featured magnificent cuisine in an atmosphere of top recording orchestras, cut-glass chandeliers, thick imported carpets and sterling silver."

Papa Lightfoot & Sammy Myers-The complete 50's recordings of two of the toughest harp players of all times. Papa Lightfoot recorded for the Imperial, Alladin and Savoy labels (among others) and these are some of the most amazing examples of post war, electric harmonica ever recorded. His version of ''When The Saints Go Marching In'' is utterly astounding! Sam Myers has made a name in contemporary blues through his work with Anson Funderburgh. These recordings from the Rex, Ace, and Fire/Fury labels are low down examples of his mastery. Many of these cuts feature Elmore James and his band. There are no dull moments here.
