Kevin of The HE-TOO’S stopped by today.

17 Nov


THE HE-TOO’S were from The East Side of St Paul; they morphed into the legendary Free and Easy Band. They released a 45 in 1967. Kevin stopped in GoJohnnyGo Records in White Bear Lake today, sold me some records and a record player. Jim Larkin ended up in The Stillroven, Tom Behr manages Free and Easy these days. Tony “Fatty” Tuccitto passed away last year, Bob Behr was a ruffian.

Thanks to MinnePaulMusic for the photo, and to Kevin Heinz for the autograph.

Minnesota, Country Music, and the scene around THE FLAME NIGHTCLUB

30 Sep

The Flame was located at 16th & Nicollet Ave, on the southern edge of Downtown Minneapolis. We’ve had a great discussion with Jan North of The North Sisters and The Rhythm Ranch Gals previously. Check it for some background on Jan. Here’s some more photos from that scene, maybe you can help me identify some of the folks?
