Others  ?

I was a member of the Kings of Soul.  We were a local R&B/Soul band with a tight (and large) horn section.

Clarence was the leader of group when I was there.  We practiced in his parents basement.

I will continue to think about the other member names.

Lourice Martin, September 2007

I am Kenney Kirk and I played organ in Harold Tisons basement of his parents. Waynn Rabb played also. I went on to be one of the originals of the much admired band Acapolco Gold the original spelling.
