One of the two hot bands in Regina, SK in 1966 (the other was The White Knights – also managed by Joe Vargo).  Despite having a US release with RCA for “Shake Yourself Down”, the band did not manage to crack that market. It did however chart in Western Canada on a number of stations.

They had a couple more singles on the Gaiety label before disappearing.
