Henchmen - Camp Atterbury - 1966

Here's a cool pic of the Henchmen, August '66. A group from the Camp Atterbury Job Corps, shown playing at the Lions Club fish fry. I've read about bands from foster homes, the Sangralads from a boys home, but never have seen a band from the job corps. Pretty cool eh? The notes from the event were just overwhelming, " The group played many musical numbers and some of the crown danced". Wow, what enthusiasm, too bad they didn't leave a set list!

Members were:
Front, left to right:

Don Scott
Gaylor Roach
Richard Guzman
Richard Mirayes - Drums

No recordings known or rumored, but I'm always looking!

I am proud to say my brother was a member of The Sangralads.He was the drummer and did the vocals for "Think of What your Sayin'.I am very fortunate to still have a few copies of the record.The band changed thier name and recorded a 45 under the name "SunLightning Incorporated.
