Jerry Cadwell contacted me a while back. Back in the 60’s, he was drummer and vocalist with “The Marvelous Marauders,” a 7-piece blue-eyed soul group from Minnesota patterned much after “The Fabulous Flippers.” The Marvelous Marauders played at The Pop House in March 1967. Jerry said this blog site brought back memories of touring, rockin’, and visiting places like Beloit. He remembers that the Pop House was jammed to the ceiling and it was hot for a March night. Tell me if you remember that night.

In this 1966 publicity shot, Jerry is standing on the left. He may get back to me to identify the others, but in the meantime we can read more about the history of the band and who-might-be-who in this picture at The Marvelous Marauders Official Web Site. In 2005, the band was inducted into the Minnesota Rock & Country Hall of Fame .
