That 70s Wisconsin Beat:

A Continuation of Gary E. Myers' Research into Wisconsin Pop/Rock/Soul/Country, Part Two

    The following are the additional unpublished research notes made by Gary E. Myers who has granted SLAHS permission to publish them in two parts. The page title is the idea of website editor Mike Reilly, and may not be used without his permission. All rights reserved. No part of this webpage may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, including photocopying, recording or by any information storage and retrieval system, without permission in writing from author/researcher Gary E.

    This is comprised of peripheral info from my 60s research. Many of the items were saved as notes rather than usable finished entries. Also, many of the artists in this document have some connection to earlier artists covered in my books. Gary E. Myers / MusicGem

NOTE: The following artists were originally included in my 50s-60s books due to incorrect info that indicated 1969 as the year of their record releases:

American Tea Co
Apple-Glass Cyndrom (listed in appendix of 1st bk)
Bowery Boys / Baby Grand / Clicker

I played the record and it is terrific but no clues as to the date.  Side 1 is a great country novelty, but old 50s country.  Side 2 is a complete departure---a teener ballad with superb vocal.  Well, we know this is not a 50s record due to the zip code.  The label is a bit hokey but that could fit any time period.  The songs are both very long which is not typical of an older record.  It is a stereo 45.  If a million dollar bet were on the line I would say it is a 70s record done by an unknown "great" artist who can easily imitate the sounds of 50s country and 50s ballads---or not.  The smoke salmon side could mean smoke pot with references to drinking, etc. so 60s is back on the table. All in all a wonderful undiscovered WI record.  John R

The roots of the Personations go back to Roosevelt Junior High School where Donnie Coleman had a vocal group called the Impersonations, named for their ability to emulate popular groups. Coleman met Curry Johnson who also had a group (Van Earl and the Vantations) and the two became close friends. In 1971, Johnson formed the CurriCane label and presented his tune, "Future” to the Impersonations.

They recorded at Motor City Recording in Detroit using a backing band known as the Organization. “IM” was dropped from the name because they were no longer impersonating others. They became a popular live attraction, often playing with other underground Milwaukee acts such as the Chefs, Aalon Butler and the New Breed, the Altruistics, and the Cheaters.

Originally a trio circa 1965, this band lasted for 17 years, playing mostly regionally, with some gigs in Milwaukee and Eau Claire. They backed Little Jimmy Dickens, Hank Thompson, Eddy Raven & others, and opened for Jim Ed Brown, Crystal Gayle, Bob Luman & others. Guitarist Denny Bloom played on their Wausau sessions. Don Lasee & Deanna Hass were invited to sing on the Wheeling Jamboree by a man who heard them at a logging show, and they recorded the LP while there. Dan Weinand is Deanna’s brother, and her uncle was Hoot Roberts.

“She Called Me ...” is taken at a brisk shuffle tempo with Mary Robbins flavor to Don’s vocal. “Wound ...” is a medium shuffle with a duet vocal. “Give Me ...” is another duet shuffle. All the cuts on the LP are nicely done, although this one sounds as if it may be from an earlier session.

PINK PEACH MOB – Miami, OK

This was a band that happened in the psychedelic era around 1968, about the time the song “THE LETTER" was popular (my note: 8/67-12/67). This band was comprised of Steve Gaines lead guitar & vocals, Don Malchi guitar, John Moss drums, Jerry Carpenter bass, Dee Poole lead vocals and Mike Rivers keyboards. Jim Poole also played the Hammond C-3 organ.

Cathy Reeve

(d: 1977, age 22)

5051 Missouri River/Wanderin' In My Mind (Black Hawk)

Both sides were written by Cathy’s father, Wilbur, who had a grocery store in Black Hawk.

Article from the Daily News, Feb 12, 1977
The scene would be replayed many times. Every day after school, Cathy Reeve, Black Hawk, WI., would huddle in her bedroom - sometimes daydreaming - often strumming on her guitar. Her guitar & the music she made from it had become her salvation. She dreamed of using it to become famous. "She carried the guitar with her all the time," her father remembers."

200 miles away, Cynthia Harper, a west side Chicago woman, also 21, dreamed of becoming someone important, a nurse. She was anxious to help people - so much so that a neighbor who remembers her childhood describes her this way: "If she saw one of her neighbors walking down the street with a bag of groceries she would offer to help carry them."

The women had different backgrounds - one a small town white, the other a big city black. Neither had money in their family; their life-styles were not shared. Much of their lives they spent apart, but for the last 16 months they were closer than sisters. Their differences had become similarities and their successes and failures were akin.
They were together one day two weeks ago when they died. Moments apart, they plunged to their deaths from an eighth floor window at the Lawson YMCA. A Neighbor at the YMCA called their deaths a "tragic mistake." And indeed they appear to be. It's believed that only Cathy had planned to leap from the YMCA hotel window because she believed she had cancer. Cynthia wasn't supposed to have fallen from the window. Police found evidence to that when they discovered two envelopes, one addressed to Cathy's parents and the other addressed to Cynthia. Inside were letters that gave instructions for what should happen to her belongings.

The medical examiner's office has called the deaths suicides and the two vibrant women have become statistics to those who never knew them.

Rudy started the band in 1968 and kept it going for 25 years. The Pyramids played live from the Empire Cafe in Chippewa Falls on WAXX radio in 1969, and from the Long Branch Bar in Black River Falls in 1972-73. Rudy first played piano and accordion as a child and, while living in Sacramento, CA in 1961, he played in his brother’s band there. Rudy left the music business in 1993 and opened the Bay Street Coin Shop in Chippewa Falls.

good LP (sic) 101 Sundance /71

6 Days – LP reissue Gearfab /71

Rhythm’s Children, of the Rogers Park area of Chicago, begat Mountain Bus, which begat Skyfarmer. Ed Mooney recalled picking the name: “One stoned night in late 1967, some of us were sitting around putting together weird combinations of nouns like Airplane Fat, Doorknob Lint, etc,” he said. “Eventually, we came up with Mountain Bus.”

Organist Larson left early in the going and the People’s Arts Corporation became associated with the group in 1969. Coincidentally, that was the year that Leslie West and Felix Pappalardi put the band Mountain together. While Mountain was playing the Woodstock Festival, Mountain Bus was practicing in a dungeon at 187 Wacker Drive. In 1970 People’s Arts decided to manufacture and sell record albums at a price that everyone could afford to pay. “good records” (sic) pressed 10,000 copies of Sundance and advertised in the Chicago Seed. New York Times rock critic Mike Jahn called Sundance “...an exquisite record...an LP worth going out of the way to find” and 3,500 were sold in short order.

The album jacket included the statement “Mountain Bus is in no way connected with the rock group ‘Mountain’,” but this apparently was not enough to satisfy Windfall, which managed Mountain. In November 1971 they sued People’s Arts Corp. and Mountain Bus for copyright infringement in connection with the use of the name Mountain. The irony is that, several months later, Mountain itself was disbanded as a group. The Bus, of course, was left in dismal shape financially, having to sell their equipment to help pay court costs. Kees, Takehari and Sims relocated to Wisconsin where they started Skyfarmer. One of their songs includes the line “I cannot stay here...I will not play here,” which pretty well sums up their bitter feelings toward the Mountain Bus experiences.

Lee Sims later drummed with Jim Schwall and the Cody Jarrett band. Tom Jurkens moved to Boulder, Colorado and sang with a blues band called Main Squeeze. Ed Mooney, Bill Kees and Craig Takehari reunited to form Kiddo, which included Dick Larson, the original Mountain Bus keyboard player. Mooney also owned Flatts ‘N Sharps Music Store and Round Records, where his business partner was Steve Krater.

Dave Kennedy ? Cheryle/My Baby’s Been Talkin’ /70

Only a very small quantity of this recording was pressed. The band broke up in 1973 and is apparently unrelated to a touring 70’s show group by the same name, also operating out of Milwaukee. That later band included drummer John Ruka and his wife Annette, and they subsequently changed their name to Unauthorized Personnel.

John Ruka, 62, took his own life at home Saturday, 9/15/07. He grew up in Bay View, began taking drum lessons when he was 12, went on to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, graduating with a bachelor's degree in fine arts - an unusual degree for a percussion major. Married in 1972; wife Annette. Both quit their day jobs. "We were part of a rock show group - first the Sound Investment and then Unauthorized Personnel," Annette Ruka said. "We were all over the country for five years."

They returned to Milwaukee in 1978. Ruka opened his studio, which became known as the Drum Instructors' Guild, or D.I.G. Milwaukee.Early on, he was a freelance percussionist with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. He continued performing until the last few years, including as a pickup percussionist with groups appearing in Milwaukee and with the Bay View Players. Ruka helped organize a percussion contest first known as Thundering Drums, now Groovathon. He was the organizer of an annual drum clinic at Wisconsin Lutheran College.

"He would bring in some high-end performers like Ed Thigpen, who played with Ella Fitzgerald, and Carmine Appice, who was with Vanilla Fudge," Dave Ruka said. "They all knew John and they all liked John." Ruka also assisted area bands, including the Wauwatosa East and Wauwatosa West high school marching bands.

Gary Rowin - March 2013

I was the drummer and we did a re-union gig in 2002. A friend of ours worked for a cable TV station out of Janesville and taped the whole performance. We only had 7 hrs. of practice before we played and we hadn't been together since 1976 and we didn't know until the day we played that we were going to get filmed by this person, so it is what it is but fun.

We put out a 45 in 1973 on the Candid label and we were their number 1 all time sales of a 45 on their label. The Stoned Hinge Band was together from 1970 (I just got back from Viet Nam) booked under Bob Ballard (Speedy and the Alka-Seltzer’s) for the first 2 years and then started traveling to Florida in the winters and booked with Pyridine Production who Lobo booked under when we backed him up at the Char Bar in Jefferson. In 1975 we leased a bar in Jefferson called Shorecrest and during that year we backed up R.E.O. Speedwagon and Ruby Star. We broke up in 1976 after disco came in, just couldn't take it for music, and all the better bars around Wisconsin were going to disc-jocks.

I stopped playing for a while and then did some Christian music and taught drums. Now I am back in Madison with an Original band called Joe Anderson Conflict. We took the winter off to record a CD. When it is done I will send you a copy if you would like, just send me your address. And what are you doing with yourself these days?

Sorry for the long response and there is a web page, just type in Stoned Hinge Band. The band I am in right now is on Facebook, type in Joe Anderson Conflict and it will come up.

Still drummin',

Gary Rowin

I was aware of the Candid release and in my research I learned that it was 70's, which left it out of my coverage (1950-69), but I've kept all such info in a WI 70's file. The one guy whom I spoke with was Brian Ray, and I also had the name Rick Roulfsmeier. Then recently I saw some info on the band that didn't include either of those names, but showed Maynard McIntyre - ld gtr, Wayne Skau - rh gtr, Steve Shower - kb, Paul Accurso - bs, and you on dr. What's the scoop with those other names?

All members were incarcerated at time of this recording. An engineer came out to the prison and recorded them. A-side is hard psychedelic funk; flip is group soul. By all accounts they apparently pressed only 25 copies of the 45. The engineer had a small pressing facility in his studio and hand cut 25 of these records with labels. (Per Dante C)

After a tornado destroyed several local barns on May 24, 1958, the Valley Boys band played their first gig in a celebration of the rebuilding. That band consisted of Lynn Johnson (guitar), Steve Feyereisen (accordion) and Henry Marson (drums). The members changed several times throughout their 30 years. Line up shown is from their first two LP’s. Steve Feyereisen was the only original member who made it all 30 years from 1958 to 1988, Dennis Thorsen was with the band from 1960 to 1988

Steve Feyereisen still performs periodically (mainly care centers and special occasions).

Dennis Thorsen performs with a group called the "Hunyuks".

Here's some additional information about the Valley Boys, as written by good friend Dave Feyereisen.

The Valley Boys was a dance band who performed throughout Western Wisconsin and Eastern Minnesota from

1958-1988. The band was started in 1958 by Dave's dad, Steve Feyereisen (accordian); his cousin Henry Marson (drums),

Lynn Johnson (guitar, vocals).

Dave Feyereisen joined the group in 1978. At that point the other members of the band were: Steve Feyereisen

(accordian, synthesizer); Dennis Thorsen (guitar, lead vocals); Dave Waughtal (trumpet, trombone, vocals); Charlie

Feyereisen (tuba, bass guitar, vocals).

Side note: Steve Feyereisen still performs periodically (mainly care centers and special occassions).

Dennis Thorsen performs with a group called the "Hunyuks" which also features Roberts, Wisconsin resident Bill Gnatzig  (vocals,guitar). They also call upon wisconsin musician Roger Huetmaker on some dates, as well as Darlene and Kenny Nelson (vocals, guitar and fiddle)

Dave Feyereisen (drums) performs periodically as well. A couple of years ago, Dave Feyereisen aquired old masters of some show in the 1970's. It was a labor of love for Dave Feyereisen to actually bake these old tapes and aquire the vintage audio gear

in which to play the various tape formats. I must say that it was quite impressive what Dave was able to achieve.

Paul Vernon

Love 821 Keeps My Mind A-Wonderin’/For Carol

Singer/guitarist Vernon began performing in 1973, and his release on Love was done in 1975 when he won a talent contest at Gritzmacher’s Alpine Inn in Wisconsin Rapids. Based in central Florida since 1980, Vernon was working as a single or duo in 2002.

Label looks like 70s novelty, especially with the zip code but we know this could be late 60s and it sounds like 50s or 40s pop. The rock side puts it closer to a late 50s vibe.  The entire record is an old guy doing a ballad and a rock thing.  He must be a Madison institution.
