Ronnie & the Rebels

Big bands, little bands, we try to cover them all here! From May 1965 (Race weekend too, for us Indy 500 fans! Jimmy Clark won that year in a Ford powered Lotus)
Ronnie and the Rebels, one of hundreds of bands playing on a Friday night in Indiana. Who are you guys? Where did you go, and would you share a story or two with us!

Nomads - Morgantown - '65-'66

Ok, every state had a "Nomads", and most probably several in the state. These guys hailed from Morgantown, Indiana. The population is quite small (under 1,000), and I imagine this was the only teen combo at the time. Both photos are from July '65, but they look several years apart.

This is one of those bands where I have more contributed names than apparent members.

Associated names:
Harold Collier
Mike Collier
Dan Rueshaw
Skip Wood
Bill Owens
Herbert Brock
G. Means

Any narrowing down of who is who, please fill me in. And if the guy with the '65 Ventures mosrite still has it, all I ask is to let me play "Walk, Don't Run" on it, then my life will be complete!!!
