Yes, there were more girl groups in Indiana! For your consideration we present the Shades. The band hailed from Etna Green (tiny little town between South Bend & Ft. Wayne).
Janice Gard - Bass
Suzannah Blodgette - drums
Cinda Stouder - Guitar
The girls managed to make three 45's, from 1964 to '66.

The Shades won a contest and ended up in Amsterdam for a show! How would you like to play in front of 5000! Pretty heady stuff for the girls I'm sure.
