Minutemen - 1966 Chatrand High School

Imagine in early 1966, there are about 800 bands in Indianapolis alone. Many were around for as long as a cup of coffee, and some had revolving doors of musicians. So any evidence of existing is important, and that's why tonight we bring you The Minutemen - hailing from Chartrand High!

The Minutemen won 1st prize at the variety show competition in late 1965. The photo appeared in the Indianapolis Star on Jan. 8th, 1966 (Elvis' Birthday!) with about 20 other bands listed.

Any of these guys go on to bigger or better things? As always, any info is delightfully received.

Now for the other 799 bands...........
