The Squires - 1961

In the fall of 1959, Ted Ledford and I formed a R'nR group called The Squires.  Our first gig was Mrs. Cabalero's home room Christmas party in Dec of 1959.  From that, we eventually did very  well and by 1961 had recorded two records and were playing regularly around Chattanooga.
We had this promo photo made at a photo studio on Dayton Blvd in White Oak.  It has been "lost" for the past 45 years but thanks to Butch Thomas' mother was discovered this week in a frame behind another photo.
Left to right,  Larry Blanks, Allen Lutes, Jimmy Harris, Butch Thomas, Don Jackson.

Okay, so this one went thru the washer a long while back.   Left to right, Billy Clements, Phil Wilkerson, Creston York,  Larry Blanks, Billy Tucker and Clyde Beard.  I think it was a band trip for a football game in Bradley County (???) and the bus stopped at a cafe on the way back.  Date was probably the winter of 1958 but film was processed in Feb 1959.
