    I saw Cathy and the Crescents while station at Ft. Knox, Kentucky in 1968. Any chance it’s the same group ? Cathy sang ” The Letter” and everyone loved it.

    I knew them as “The Heeringa Trio”, must have been just the three Heeringas at that time. Ya think? I wonder if they would remember Keith, Dave and the “Cyclones”. If any of you read this, Keith lives in South Carolina and has made a career of music. keithtracylivemusic.com

    It is good to find places like this that are wealth of information on bands from our past. Sparky Harris is still playing today with Christy G and Velvet and the Legends band. I really like your web site.
