My Uncle Was In The Hondells
The Hondells were a surf rock band that got to go on tour with The Supremes and Chuck Berry. They opened up for The Beach Boys mostly, played a lot with Herman's Hermits, played USO shows, and ran around with Glen Campbell. They were short lived, but my Uncle Dick was the band leader. I knew him well, I have Thankgiving with him every year. Unfortunately he died recently. So here's The Hondells on Shindig and whatever youtube has.
