* Tom Archia took "Texas Tom" as his marquee name. He played with Mit Larkin's band in Chicago, taking up a residency at the Rhumboogie Club from August 1942 to May 1943. From 1943 to 1944 he was a member of the Roy Eldridge orchestra and the Rhumboogie "Dream Band." In 1945, Archia went to Los Angeles to join Howard McGhee's combo. Returning to Chicago in 1946, he became a headliner at Leonard Chess's club, the Macomba Lounge, until 1950, and recorded extensively for Aristocrat Records, the predecessor to Chess Records, during 1947 and 1948. He retired to Houston in 1967, playing Houston clubs for the rest of his life.
With the Sun in Sagittarius and an equally-fiery triple Leo conjunction of the Ascendant, Neptune and Jupiter, Archia would have had plenty of energy to burn.
