Who was/is The Kingsmen ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more
a vocal/instrumental quintet from Portland, Oregon, comprised Lynn Easton (vocals), Gary Abbott, Don Gallucci, Mike Mitchell and Norman Sundholm. Formed in 1957 at high school, they developed a reputation while employing their driving, bluesy sound on TV commercials and one-nighter tours before signing with Wand in 1963.
Their debut, a raw revival of Richard Berry's 'Louie Louie' delivered with virtually indecipherable diction, gained a gold disc in 1964, numerous subsequent hits following over three years, largely based on R&B songs. 'Louie Louie' enjoys a reputation as the all-time best-selling 'oldie'.
