Blues Inc. - Ft. Wayne 1966

Did you ever think that the band you were watching, maybe even bought the 45 because they were so good that night, might be lost to time? It happens, quite a bit actually. Presenting the Blues Inc., hailing from Ft.Wayne. 
All we have is this one ad - Nov. 4 1966. Never heard of Bojrab's Hall before or after. But the band did leave us one fantastic moody, minor key 45.

Tell Me Girl

Get Off My Back

Another Ft. Wayne band that made the trek to Cap Studios in Portage Michigan, the Olivers being the other, with record #1022, just before the Blues Inc.. Wise and Shoaff are the writers names, publishing by Westhaven, same as the Olivers, hence probably thru the label.

This is too good to be forgotten..........any clues (real or imagined) welcomed!

Amoris Arma - 1967

Little to go on here fans. The Amoris Arma. Amoris Arma = Loving Arms?
This is an ad from Pizza King in New Haven, Indiana, circa mid '67. . New Haven is just southeast, or maybe a suburb of  Ft. Wayne.

And as we say, this friends, is all I know. Also playing there at the Pizza King were the Beat Generation, and the Collection.

The Boys Decision - 1967 Ft. Wayne

Swingin' back to 1967 - Ft. Wayne, Indiana! There once was a band known as the Nu-Trons. The Nu-Trons begat the Boys Decision.

Jack Peterson - guitar
Steve Inscoe -
Butch Rodemeyer - lead singer
Glenn Druhot - drums
Dave Robinson - guitar

Pretty interesting group of guys just for the playing and getting gigs in a crowded 1967 Ft. Wayne market. But add to the resume this nugget....

Nov.24th, 1967 at the Swinging Gate, the Boys Decision was the warm-up for The Who! That's right boys and girls, the Who played in Ft. Wayne at the Swinging Gate. The Boys Decision played rock and soul so they must have filled in just nicely. Talk about pressure, dang.

Someone, somewhere has to have some photos of the Swinging Gate. I'm told it may be gone now, but there has to be some record of it!
