Tribu-Terrys 1965

I finally found a pic of the Tribu-Terrys. This is earlier than I thought they existed, from December '65. Still don't know why they and the Noblemen from McCordsville recorded on the Prism (Dayton, Ohio)label. I'm just glad they recorded at all. Hear Leavin' to Stay right now. Known 45 is Prism 1951 - Leavin' to Stay / My Shadow is You. I'm hoping soon I'll be able to list the band members!!!! This song is too good to be forgotten, so if you know anything, just call me!!

GT Combo - Whiteland, Indiana '66-'67

The GT Combo,first I was told they were from Beech Grove, but after talking with a band members parents last night, I believe they were from Whiteland, Indiana. Seems to be active in the circuit from late '66 to mid '67.
Band members included:
front to back,
left to right:

Paul Venter - lead
Roger Miller - rhythm & singer
Charles "Chick" Gibbs - sax
Melvin Babbs - guitar
Jim Scofield - drummer

No 45 known, no tapes rumored, but give these guys the dues for giving it a go. I'll keep you posted on how the talks are progressing!
