A favorite act in their hometown of Monroe, Haymarket Riot’s career spanned a large chunk of the decade playing the roller rinks, school hops and venues that sprang up along the Michigan/Ohio border, including a pretty regular stint at The Club. Starting out as The Avengers.

The band splintered in 1969.

More on The Haymarket Riot here.

This is not the CLB label out of Indiana. Many other Haymarket Riots are known to have existed :
  • Chicago band, backing Calvin James on Stature, 1967
  • One from Enid, Oklahoma, on Riot, 1968
  • The one on Coconut Groove, 1968, also from Michigan
  • And a Cincinnati band on London
