Peabody Soul Foundation - Company 1968

We found your Blog Google-ing 1960's Ft. Wayne bands. My boyfriend was in a popular band back in the late 60's to early 70's called the Peabody Soul Foundation. The band members were:
Rick Parker - drums
Jerry Hogan - bass
Dave Bodiker (sp) -guitar

Booking Agent was Mark Cooper. They played the Swinging Gate, Hullabaloo Club, national guard armory and backed up Classics IV at the Swinging Gate, amongst others. Also competed in many 'Battle of the Bands'. Maybe you can find some of the fliers or the news paper article I know there was one. Love your site it was a real trip down memory lane.
Keep up the good work,
Anne Marie"

This is the kind of lead I love. The Swinging Gate was a huge deal in Ft. Wayne, circa late '60s. I'm 99 and 44/100ths sure that the Peabody Soul Company is the same as the Foundation. Time to get us some stories of the band to share Rick!

The 10 Fantastics Perfections (from Louisville) is actually "Ronnie and the Rascals" from Indy! This happened quite a lot!
