It's nice to see Billy from the BG Ramblers.They were a really good band from Toledo.
It's good to see my old band and room mate from Johnny &the Hurricanes and after that the "Fascinators",guitarist Dave Yorko getting recognition also.

Toledo in the early sixties had a lot of rocking acts. The Raging Storms,Johnny & the Thunder birds,ect.
We had a singing group called the Commercials that worked with us(the Fasinators)at the Carousel club on central ave in 62 that were outstanding. I really enjoyed backing them up.When they did "Shout",the whole club would be on their feet dancing at their tables(and sometimes on the top of the tables lol)
