Gentlemen Bleu

Where are you, Gentlemen Bleu?
Who are you, Gentlemen Bleu?

The only clues are writer credits:

Al Stone & Mike Hunting

The Gentlemen Bleu performed at the Cabaret (I presume a teen dance club) and left this ad in Ft. Wayne, June 1967. Since the 45 was pressed in 1967, we can assume that they were together for a least a couple of years. Believed to be students attending Hanover College (Madison, IN), and hailing from Indianapolis.

One 45 known - Trump 355 - Louisville label

Let's hear some music:

Hate to Tell You
One More Day

Looking forward to these guys checking in! Give us the scoop Gentlemen Bleu!!

The Flock - 1967 - Ft. Wayne

Close your eyes and envision a formal cocktail party.
The place, Orchard Ridge Country Club.
The date, Saturday, July 1967.
The band: The Flock.

Of course it helps if your parents are members, and you can dress nicely, unlike those "hippie kids".

Band members that day:
Denny Grosenbacher
Andy Barile
Mark Richards
Rick Furniss
Denny Burns

Where did you go guys, any recordings left behind? There was a "Flock" that released an LP and a few 45's in 1969, but none of these guys seem related.
