A Book Project: Palm Beach County Local Bands of the 60s and 70s. A look back at the bands, musicians, venues, and musical instrument stores that made up our local music scene from 1960 through 1980.
I launched this website in order to gather as much material (names, stories, photos, audio and video) as possible about the people, places and music that I was so fortunate to be a part of here in Palm Beach County. It will take some cooperation from many of you who were playing here in the sixties and seventies, but my plan is to write and self-publish a fairly thorough book that will bring it all together again for all of us old guys. This project may take a year or two, but it needs to be done before we forget the details. Most importantly, we’ve got to show our kids and grand-kids that we were once really cool!
The second purpose for the site will be to complement the book with all the things that the web can do, such as photo slide shows, audio clips and even some video. It is also searchable so that one can quickly find all references to a band, player, song or place.
The following web pages have lists with all of the names that I could come up with from memory, along with many contributions from players and friends out there. If your name or band or place is not yet included, please use the Contribute links at right to send us the information. We will update all lists as new material comes in.
Thanks in advance for your interest and contributions. I look forward to hearing from you!
