Bomarcs - '66 Indianapolis - Indiana

"Have you seen your mother, baby, standing in the shadow?" At the time, the most controversial of the Stones' hits, and this group, the Bomarcs, did it well. Best known for being the "musicians-in-residence" at Le Scene (can anyone tell me where this was?). Versatility - Stones, psyche stuff, Rhythm & Blues, and some plain old-fashioned hard rock, and that something else, their bass player was very definitely a girl.

Members included:
Jim Benge - lead guitar
Dave Prince - rhythm guitar
Judy Cagle - bass
Bob Goodson - drums
Dan Bradburn - lead singer

Jim Benge went on to play in Madison Zane ('70's Indiana band)
Many thanks to Robert (Bob) Goodson for sending me this info!

Clarence Brown Memorial String Band - Indianapolis - Indiana - '67

Ok, well the name may have been a little weird, but it sure stood out. Clarence Brown Memorial String Band. Influenced by the likes of the Yardbirds and the Young Rascals, these Pike High school students strived to bring a unique approach to music, as evidenced by the attention-getting moniker.
From top:
Garry Neal - organ
Toby Myers - bass
Danny Ellis - drums
Jim Thornberry - guitar

Of course we all know Toby went on to Indy's own Roadmaster, a long stint with some guy named Mellencamp, and is kickin' it now with his own band No Net. Check them out, loads of fun! Not sure about the other CBMSB band mates, but as always, I'll be looking and sharing with you.
