This picture of the band was taken in the mid-sixties. Jimmy Williams had replaced Bob Weir. Left to right.... Jimmy Williams,keyboards; Darrell Tucker, guitar; Jim Hall, guitar; Ron Willis, drums; Jimmy Ray Fussell, vocals; and Jack Cribbs sitting (keyboards).
The Coachmen originally formed under the name of the Teen-Beats. This 45 RPM was cut with popular singer David Howell.
This article was written by band member Jack Cribbs about the Coachmen history. The band got back together after a 25 year absence. The kids had heard talk about the band for years and we wanted them to "live the experience". It was a great night...
The Coachmen performed with the Coffee County High Glee Club in Douglas, GA in the mid-sixties.
