From Arlington High School, J & the Raiders. Often called mistakenly called Jay & the Raiders, but for lack of a Jay, it was J. Lost yet? It was the '60s! I have another pic somewhere showing the drumhead beaming "J & the Raiders" if there is any doubt.
The band was well remembered for it's participation in the Pendleton Pike drive-in "Battle of the Bands" during the summers. Have no idea how they fared, but I'm sure we'll find out!
They were going to chicago to record a 45, I'm pretty sure in '66. If that ever happened, we need to know about it, .....anyone?
Members pictured (l to r):
Jim Fenley - Drums
I hope these guys find us soon, we'd love to share your story!
