Does anyone remember any local musicans or bands through the years that originated here or that you remember performing around here.

One of the first I remember was Johnny and Gerald. What about the Phantoms from the '60s

Some one from the past who is back performing here is Don Byers.

Doc, Randall was outside labor day weekend with a speaker or something playing outside. I opened the door & was like, "who's that?"!

The Swinging Medllions were at Truett McConnel College, found out you can't dance in the Gym of a Baptist college.

Does anyone remember the JetFli Spectaculars put on by WFLI radio in Chattanooga??

Randall Collins has been a well know musican from around here for many years. What was the name of the band he was with when he used to perform here in the '60s?

What was the name of a group of guys from here who would perform up at Vogel some times in the late '60s?? Ok some of these guys are still around here.

What was the name of the group or members of the old Winfield Scott squire dance band? Who was the caller most of the time?

When I was dating my now husband we use to go over to Winfield Scott and listen to the music and watch them dance. I was always a chicken and never did get on the dance floor but I really did enjoy watching the dancing and listening to the music.
