Anyone rembers two bands that played the southside in the late 60's called Gary Rolland and the Continetals and there was also The Sound Pounders with Steve Spears as lead. What abouth Myia? Wonder where their at now?
Gsary Roland's Grandfather is the person that owned the old '56 Chevy with two front ends. He lives in Rivendell....Construction company owner....
How about Looney Tunes? Or... Looney Toones?
My memory is shot, but I think his name is Bill Hood and he works there. There were some great players in that group.
How about Jude and Jody?
Wiley and Gene?
Bud and Don Mathis?
All major bands in the 60's locally.............
Does ANYONE remember the band "The Henchmen" and who any or all of the members of this band were??????????????????????????
I remember the band but not the members
Just this month all but Barlow (he got dosed w/Agent Orange in VietNam and is in a bad way in Assisted Living as his spine melts away) gathered at the Oklahoma Historical Museum w/beaucoup bands of the era for a tribute to Ronnie Kaye. Gary Roland was there and had word of about all the other Continentals but none could attend - Steve Cassidy - Delmer Pound - Greg Newberry - Bill Newman. Bill is retired in McCurtain county - Greg is in Florida doin' Public Education stuff - can't remember 'bout Steve and Delmer - sorry.
There was a band called The Road Runners that KOMA and/or WKY used to publicize. They traveled all over Oklahoma playing 'sock hops' on Friday and Saturday night. I don't know if they were really based in OKC or not.
Sam Hankins and the Hodads
Dwayne and the Belldettas
Squattie and the Botties
The "summer of love" eventually made its' way to Oklahoma and changed everything... what an era to live through, especially as a musician...
