The Quints on Stage at the Wooden Shoe about late 1967

One of the last bands to play The Wooden Shoe was the last incarnation of Don & The Goodtimes featuring Don Gallucci, Ron Overman, Bob Holden, Joey Newman & Jeff Hawks.  They were touring to promote their biggest hit, I Could Be So Good To You.   I attended this particular show with the family camera and shot about 50 pictures of the guys in action, which I then promptly gave to Don.  If you can find him, he's got some great Polaroids!
