Tonight's installment is the Dawnells. I don't have a photo, but I know one exists (seen in the way out of print "Hoosier Hysteria"). Managed by TAGG Productions out of Bloomfield Indiana (same as the Sons Of Sound). Bogan Records (no #) Little Egypt / Scorpion. Little Egypt is the lieber-stoller tune, while Scorpion is your basic rockin' instrumental If you know who gave us these wonderful tunes, please help us. Meanwhile, listen to Little Egypt here.
This poster was found by Scott, who's father booked the Dawnells often at Dietz Lake. Thanks Scott!
From Olney, IL, this poster dates from 1967.
Mike sent a link to a YouTube Video:
Many great band pics on this video! The song rocks too!
Undated photo shows the Dawnells as a five piece, later shots have four members.
Kenny Chaney - Lead Singer
Mike Parton - Bass
Larry Smith - Drums
Mike Baines - replaced Mike Parton
Kenny and wife were killed by a drunk driver in 1972.
