The Eighth Penny Matter (Denver)

This from Colorado Music historian Mike Stelk:

“The Eighth Penny Matter open the club, it was their demo tape that lead Barry Fey to the San Francisco offices of the Family Dog on June 7th 1967.  Barry was on his honeymoon (and out of work, having just left the employ of Denver Promoter Ed Weimer), so he decides to drop by the Family Dog office after seeing their Billboard ad in which they’d sought new acts (with original material) for the club.

He then makes an appeal on behalf of the band, friends from his earliest days in Colorado, with a 4 song reel recorded in Denver. Chet and Bob then invite him to the Avalon Ballroom that night and give Barry another view of the local scene, with the light show.

Barry returns to Denver, and after hearing of the closing of The Bird, he sees on opening for the Family Dog to expand to Denver, so he calls Bob Cohen, who soon flys out.”

All but Morgan came recommended to the Electric Prunes by former Astronaut Rich Fifield who was heading up the band Hardwater. The three (minus Morgan) were performing in a Colorado band called Climax. Richard Whetstone had previously managed a Denver band from George Washington High School “The Ramblin Blues”.

The Exodus folk club was started by Hal Neustaedter in the late 1950’s, located at 1999 Lincoln.  The club showcased many local and national folk acts through the years and towards the end in the early 1970’s was featuring rock-oriented cats and progressive acts.  The club was shut down by Denver law enforcement for delinquent tax debts.

F.A.B. Company

The F.A.B. Company was comprised of Frank Bruen, Ralph Achilles and Bonnie Ellison. They formed in the late 1960’s. Achilles and Frank also performed as a duo. The group was later joined by Jerry Jacobs.  I had earlier erroneously reported that country singer Bonnie Nelson was with this group.  This in on February 18th, 2016 from Lawrence Kay (“DJ Joe Sixpack”):

“I did want to offer one correction, though: country singer Bonnie Nelson was *not* part of the band F.A.B. Company, as previously reported in the North Of Pueblo site.  The FAB singer is Bonnie ELLISON, who was also a Colorado native, and who went to the same high school as Bonnie Nelson, but is not the same person.   Bonnie Ellison — who I recently e-mailed to ask about this confusion, and who confirms they were two different people — stopped touring with FAB in 1973 because she had Multiple Sclerosis, while Bonnie Nelson moved to Nashville to pursue a country music career.”

The Fantabulous Jags (Kansas to Denver)

Fantabulous Jags 02

Fantabulous Jags 03

Not merely fantastic nor fabulous – but Fantabulous! That was the Kansas-come-to-Denver band The Fantabulous Jags – and they were! I had the pleasure of watching them perform a few times at the Pussy Cat A-Go-Go along the Platte Valley in Denver. They put out a haunting sound rich with echo vocals and reverb. I recall seeing various band members in West Denver coming and going from Arlan’s Department store which was located on Sheridan Blvd., right next to radio station KIMN. They must have resided near-by. My wife worked as a cashier there as a young girl and saw band members often entering the store. Their presence there may be explained by a conversation I had with fellow Denver West High Cowboy – Bill Ponikivar (Class of ’64) – He relates that a couple of the Jags resided at the Bugs Bunny Motel on West Colfax in Lakewood which was mere blocks away from Arlans. Now how in the world would Bill know that I wonder?

(Above: The old “Bugs Bunny” Motel and today’s version “modern” version of the “Bugs Bunny” Motel sign now the “Big Bunny” – Probably had a lawsuit with Looney Toones Cartoons or Mel Blanc or something.)

The hair! Nothing quite like those hair-do’s! Denver vinyl record store employee and local expert Mike Stelk told me that The Jags recorded on the New York Sunco label which was more of a vanity label – There are very few known artists with releases from Sunco – I have only located one by The Frantics -Sunco 1008 – “La-Do-Da-Da” b/w “Route 66”.

David Ferreta & The Sunday River Bluegrass Boys

folk-ferretta

The late David Ferreta was a folk musician and associate of the “Swallow Hill Musics Organization”.  He migrated to Denver in the 1970’s and opened the folk venue, “The Global Village”.  He performed in a 1979 Swallow Hill benefit with many local folk musicians.

“From the “Hanaleip” web site: “David Ferretta was a Denver Music Icon, first working with Harry Tuft at the Denver Folklore Center and later opening his own vintage music store, Ferretta Music Service on south Broadway in Denver.  David also owned “The Global Village” a coffee house in Denver that presented live Bluegrass music.  David joined with EP Davis, Clarke Wright, Marc Conley and Bob Wire to form The Sunday River Bluegrass Show, recording an LP record album for Biscuit City Records in Denver tilted “You Can Dress Them Up, But You Can’t Take ‘Em Out”.   Sunday River performed at the earliest Bluegrass festivals in Colorado, and was a featured opening act for Colorado bands, Michael Martin Murphy, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Doug Kershaw, Chuck Pyle, Katy Moffit and many other Colorado artists and well as national acts like Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt, Jim and Jessie, Jimmy Martin, and Ralph Stanley.  Sunday River traveled extensively and performed twice at the famed Red Rock Amphitheater for Barry Fay’s “Colorado Nights”.   David passed away in 1996.”

“Hi. Great information. I was the bass player for Fetal Pig. It was formed by Steve Oas the drummer and myself. Scott Segal was on guitar and we all were students at DU. The band played all around Denver, were the house band at a bar called the 8th Infinity and our largest gig was in the fall of 69 with Vanilla Fudge and Sweetwater at the DU Arena. I would be curious if anyone remembers us and even better if anyone has any photos ? Peter Chapel”

Flameouts - USAF 66 - 66 - PS

Not likely that a group of Air Force Cadets could be accepted as ‘garage rockers’ but that is exactly what these guys did. Garage Hangover Blog Spot tells more. They formed at the Academy near Colorado Springs in 1966. Their single on the Columbia subsidiary label in Hollywood and was issued with a picture sleeve sold for just over $100 in the summer of 2013. The song was backed by the Academy who decided later not to sponsor any more recording sessions. Most of the band members went on to become combat pilots.

The Four Shades

FOUR SHADES - BOULDER

Photo contributed by group member Joel Scherzer (furthest left)

The Four Shades were Joel Scherzer, Robert Stallworth, Casey Hynes and Gerald Grant (these four are shown in the photo below).

The group recorded on Peak Records. Group member Robert Stallworth also released tracks by an unknown group from the Chicago area who were assigned the name “The Five Bucks”. Stallworth was in possession of several acetates of unknown origin and thus the Five Bucks release. Group member Joel Scherzer is a vinyl vendor and along the way was and is a writer of poems and books, a college teacher, a musician and must more.

Here is a comprehensive article about The Four Shades and the Five Bucks recordings from Pueblo Blogger Lisa Wheeler on North of Pueblo.

The Fuzz (Denver)

The following came in from Fuzz drummer and lead vocalist Peter Taylor:

“We were playing at the Denver Buddhist Center in that picture (below). The one band member not in the picture was the keyboard player, Don Sterkel – you can see the edge of his piano on the far right of the photo. We all attended Thornton High School, except senior year, when a couple of us went to the brand new Northglenn HS which just opened (class of 1967).

None of us played in another band before Fuzz, nor after (during that period of time). I’ve been playing in bands over the last 10 years, but nothing since Fuzz till now. I was drummer and lead singer then and am now harp and guitar and vocals.

My most memorable event from that most amazing musical time was playing the Denver coliseum for the KIMN battle of the bands. As I recall bands were selected by number of votes turned in by fans. We had vote signing events in our high school gym where boxes and boxes of ballots were turned in by our loyal fans (what fun!).

I’ve never played before so many people in my life and probably never will. We opened with “Feel a Whole Lot Better” by the Byrds and it felt great!! Again, hoping memory serves me, I recall both Thrush and our band Fuzz were selected to cut a record as part of the “win”. Don Whitley (sp?) out of LA, I think, was to fly back to the coast and we would hear later on how to proceed with record contract. We later heard that his small plane had crashed on the way back to Calif. and he was killed.

If any of this is verifiable, I would sure love to find out for sure. After a lot of time, stories can become fuzzy when never hearing anyone else tell the same story. I haven’t been in touch with the guys to reaffirm this. Our lead guitar player, Gary Seastone died a few years ago (I miss him). Don Yamamoto, bass guitar, is living in California, near San Francisco. Henry Vera, rhythm guitar still lives in Northglenn. I believe Don Sterkel, keyboard, is living in Boulder or Denver but I’ve not been able to contact him.

I’m Peter Taylor, drummer and lead vocals and I live now in Crestone, CO where lots of music is to be found, including the Crestone Music Festival (Crestfest.org). I’ll see if I can track down a photo or two for you.”

And this comes in from a high school classmate – Rod Martin: (March, 2016)

“Pete, I went to Northglenn and remember you and the band very well. I missed the last reunion a few years back but I heard you all played again. I remember your duet in the assembly with Gayle and the battle of the bands.  All the times I saw the Fuzz, it was you, Gary, Henry, and Joe Mascaranas played bass.  Thanks for the memories and here’s to making many more.  Rod Martin”

Gary & Eddie

Gary Morris & Eddie Johnson were a duo from Fort Worth, Texas.  They appeared at Taylor’s Supper Club and recorded locally on the Cartay Label. On this 1973 LP they are joined by teenager Teri Hernandez (vocals) and drummer Doug Winegar.  And of course Gary Morris would go onto to monumental national country fame on Warner Bros., Records.

Gary and Eddie also performed as “Tomorrow’s Time” most likely with the group including Teri.  The group was also known locally as “Taylor’s Cowboys”.

Eddie Johnson migrated back to Texas for a time to attend dental school, later returning to Denver to open his practice and join “The Lawmen”.  Gary Morris was inducted into the Colorado Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016.

Gary and Teri also released at least one single in 1977 on the Gorilla label shown below.
