The Premiers - Southport - 1966

For 50¢ (members) or 75¢ for non members, you could see the popular Southport combo, The Premiers, play at the Green-Urban pool in Greenwood, Indiana. Prices have gone up since '66.

Who are these youth you ask?

From left to right:
Gary Davis - organ
Don Gary - bass guitar
Gary Wells - rhythm guitar
Roger Cummings - lead guitar
Jim Krug - drums

Any recordings or post-Premiers music life? Your guess is as good as mine. We are batting about .750 on finding these things out, so I'll keep my fingers crossed! Wonder if any of these guys kept the guitars.....

Him Her & Them '66-'67 Indianapolis

Him Her & Them, granted, it's not the best quality photo, microfilm at it's best. The band formed in 1964. This is for a show in late '66.

Pictured: (and I don't know who is whom)
Bob Dawson
Jinx Dawson (ok, I know which one she is!)
Steve Farber
Greg Johnson
David Larman
Greg Osborne

Jinx, Greg, and David went on to form "Coven". Best known for the song "One tin Soldier" from the movie "Billy Jack", they recorded 2 albums. Jinx has cult following worshiping her as the first Gothic queen. Nice job if you can get it I guess.
