Grand Rapids – the band that was formed in 1963-4 by Hank Battjes. We were successful in doing primarily a British Invasion sound with a portfolio of our own songs, sprinkling in covers of Kinks, Them and the less mainstream British pop bands. As we all went off to college out of GR, the group was disbanded in the fall of ’65. However, all of us continued to play with various bands throughout school. All were EGR students and Ken was at South.
