The Men From S.O.U.N.D. Gig History

     The Men from S.O.U.N.D. was my second teenage band.  It was really the natural evolution of my first band, Mark & the Escorts.  We simply changed our name in keeping with the style of the times.  The core of the band was the same, but some members changed when we changed the name.  We were around 16 to 18 years of age during this period, which spanned from March of 1966 to October of 1968.  Thanks to the fact I saved my calendars from these years, below is a list of gigs The Men From S.O.U.N.D. did until we changed our name again, this time to Nineteen Eighty Four in October of 1968.  Unfortunately, I don't have the calendar for 1967 so those gigs will remain undocumented.  Below are our gigs for the years 1966 and 1968.
