Hello,

I did light shows for Tom Brown at the IDES Hall in 1968-9 (shows included Alice Cooper, Strawberry Alarm Clock, and The Loading Zone).
Please pass my email to Tom.
I would like to know if he remembers how he found us back in the day, because I sure don't!

Does anyone know what happened to the site "60sgaragebands.com? Most of the bay area bands were on it and had some songs done by them that you could play or download! Mike Dugo created the site and it was great. Maybe someone knows the answer!!

I spent many an evening at the Rollarena, IDES and later at Frenchy's. I still have many mini give-away posters. I ran across this acidentally. Fun and nostagic read.
Thanks for the memories!

Blast from the past. My brother Mike and I participated in a reunion gathering [The Just Six] at the Saddlerack in Fremont where we were able to touch base with manay long lost music buddies. These days if you see a red landrover with the license plate [3 B3 S], give me a honk, that's me. I still have my origonal B3 that I bought at Sherman & Clay in Hayward on April 26, 1967. Before then I played a VOX Contiental through a Super-Beatle amp. These days I'm still playing with various musicians. I have a profile on "The Note", a musicians website, and I travel light using a digital Hammond SK-88 with Motion Sound KBR amp or my Hammmond-Leslie 835 solid state 3-channel cabinet. Let's stay in touch. EMail me at donaldcantrell@earthlink.net I'll be looking for you online. Wishing everyone "All The Best"!!

The very 1st time my cousin Linda and I went to Frenchy's was a Sunday afternoon in 1964 or 1965. I believe we saw a group called "The Leaves"? They wore suits and of course copied the Beatles style. We thought we were 'big shots'. We were 12 or 13 give or take a year. It was a long time and my memory is not that great. Frency's was great, I remember there was an empty pool next door. What I can't believe was our Parents let us walk from Manon Avenue and walk home. What were they thinking?
Years later I would go with a Fake ID to See and Hear some Fabulous music and Bands. Thank you for all the Great Memories

Hi Ed;

I was Peter Wheats manager and producer. Can you possibly send me a jpg photo of the poster from that concert at the Fair Grounds. I would certainly appreciate it as I have been looking all over the place to secure a copy to add to my collection. My email address is: info@onticviews.com.

Kindest Regards

Barry
