I stumbled across this on Youtube and just thought it was interesting.
It occurred to me that maybe some of our TDPRI members might be in this.
Let us know if any of you are in this. :grin:

Oh my God, I loved that! I wasn't there, but I could have been. Croton-On-Hudson isn't that far from where I live now, and it's always been an affluent area. 1967 was when I got serious about being in a band and joined The Vandals, that morphed into Saturday's Garbage. We played the teen dances around our town of Bloomfield, NJ, doing the British Invasion stuff, and later, Hendrix, Cream, Steppenwolf, Doors, Vanilla Fudge, Spirit, etc. We weren't the most popular band because we refused to play the soul music the greasers liked, but were perhaps the best band, and we are the only garage band from Bloomfield immortalized in the book, Fuzz Acid & Flowers. We have a 1/2 page write-up.
Farfisa organs, polka dot shirts with white collars & cuffs, boys with fringes in the front, girls doing the Frug. Jeez, that looked just like when we played a dance at Bloomfield High School. I thought I was in a time warp.
I loved that band that did the Blue Project stuff. The singer actually sounded like Steve Katz! But the black kid singing like Felix Cavaliere wasn't much to hear.
That brought back so many memories. It was a much more innocent time, for sure.
Any other 60's garage vets out there?
