(Day 58) Kingtones Memoirs
April 3, 1964 (Friday)
We got up at 2:45 P.M. It was a nice sunny day, around 72 degrees. Pete and Phil and their girlfriends decided to spend their afternoon at the beach.
Mike went to the beach with some girl he met at Porky’s. She had her own car and picked him up at our apartment. They spent most of the afternoon just cruising around in her convertible. She was heading back to Washington D.C. in the morning. Mike had a great time.
Bob and I went shopping. Bob bought a $54.00 twenty-two pistol. I had to buy it for him, because he was not 21. It was illegal to buy a real gun in Florida if you are under the age of 21.
We all got back to the apartment about the same time. I made spaghetti for supper. We watched a little TV and then got ready to go play. We left for Porky’s at 8:45. We started to play to more people than what we had on Thursday night, because many of the locals had come in. Once again the “Kingtones’ Sound” was there. Mike was at the top of his game playing those drums. Pete’s girl was there, so he was extra good, trying to impress her. We did “The Bird” and “Elvis” and they both received screams, applause and requests to do them again. We held most of the crowd until 3:30 A.M., which surprised even us. We had another great sounding night.
When we were finished for the evening, Phil and Pete went with their girls. Bob was with some girl that latched on to him and wouldn’t let him go. She wasn’t a bad looking gal, but she was a little on the “chubby” side. She told Bob that she was going to take him to our apartment and we could go on without him. So Mike and I left and went to Royal Castle. We had just ordered our food, when who should come? It was Bob and this girl. We were all healthy and getting along good, because we didn’t see each other very much during the day.
