In the 60s, scores of bands sprung all over the Southeast, each imitating the big, highly danceable R&B sounds coming from labels such as Motown, Atlantic and Chess. In his book « The Heeey Baby Days of Beach Music : Stories and Remembrances of a Southern Music Genre author Greg Haynes documents the stories of these party bands.
