Gotta Party !

A good start for this week …Don & Dewey !!!!!!
The R&B duo of Don "Sugarcane" Harris (vocals, guitar, piano, electric violin) and Dewey Terry (vocals, guitar, piano) plied their trade in the late 1950s. They were both born in 1938 and raised in Pasadena, CA. They cut numerous blistering rockers for Specialty from 1957 to 1959 without registering a single hit, only to see other acts revive their songs to much greater acclaim.. Their Specialty output included the savage rockers "Jungle Hop," "Koko Joe" (written by Sonny Bono), and "Justine," the latter pair later covered by The Righteous Brothers. Don "Sugarcane" Harris laid down his guitar for a violin during the '60s and sawed his rocked-out fiddle beside John Mayall and Frank Zappa.
