GARAGE BANDS of the 1960s - Rare Filmed Performances
"Garage Bands" were predominately started by groups of musicians in their teens or that first recorded at home, in basements or garages. Their equipment was limited to what their low or no budgets could afford. Somehow, they produced demos that wound up on the national charts and became huge hits. Some of these groups sadly had limited commercial success, some were "One Hit Wonders," and others got replaced with session players (professional studio musicians who got paid per song, often as little as $5/song). However, they created a sound, a market, and a call to young musicians everywhere telling them their dreams might be possible. Overnight, bands with unusual names popped up: The Electric Prunes, The Seeds, ? and the Mysterians, and The Blues Magoos, to name a few. Many Punk and New Wave bands got their inspiration from the garage band sound. In later years, as the technology got cheaper and more sophisticated, groups recording at home could create sounds much like the bigger studios. But our show will focus on the beginning of this trend, with all of the raw energy that these groups had. Their sound is so captivating that a new generation of musicians, Lo-Fi bands, is rejecting current technology to try to duplicate the sound of the original garage bands. Highlights of this cool program will be The Kingsmen's legendary "Louie, Louie," Paul Revere and the Raiders with "Kicks," The Sir Douglas Quintet with "She's About a Mover," The Shadows of  Knight with "Gloria," Tommy James and the Shondells with "Mony, Mony" The McCoys with "Hang on Sloopy," The Standells with "Dirty Water," The American Breed with "Bend Me, Shape Me," and many more  Join us as we celebrate the music of these amazing bands with rare filmed performances from television, concerts, promos, and behind-the-scenes footage. Approx: 110 minutes
