Mark & the Escorts changed its name to the Men From S.O.U.N.D.
at this point. The name was a play on the title of a
popular spy television show at the time, the Man from U.N.C.L.E.
the British Invasion, Mark & the Escorts and many other
Eastside bands changed their names because the pre-invasion
names began to sound passé. The members of The Men From
S.O.U.N.D. at various times as it evolved were Mark Guerrero,
guitar/vocals; Richard Rosas, bass; Ernie Hernandez, drums/vocals;
Richard Morin, guitar/vocals; Steve Verdugo, guitar/vocals;
Richard Mojarro, guitar/vocals/harmonica; Tony Rodas, Farfisa
organ/vocals; and George Ochoa, vocals.)
