Elon College, NC


Played mostly in 1967 after the members had all played in other bands. What was lacked in musical ability was made up for in desire and energy. The band played some paying gigs (made$25 apiece one night) and the PA system only cost $80, so that was pretty good money. Broke up when the members left for college. Reformed in 2003 when they rediscovered each other via the internet.
