The Outlaws were a genuine rock n’ roll band in that they played loud and proud. Where bands like The Cavaliers, The Frantiks  or The Crescendos played more “pop” music and tried to appeal to everyone, the Outlaws played some of the wilder British Invasion material and the kids loved them. Upper left foto includes Peter Sawchuck who was a loud, fast talking CHAT radio DJ for a short time around 1965. L to R back row Gerry Maier (guitar) Peter Sawchuck (manager??) Gary Ulrich (vocals)  L to R front row Dave Meher (bass) John Patton (drums) Don Patterson (guitar).  These shots were taken at the Medicine Hat  Teen Hall for anyone that recognizes the backdrop. Upper right photo…Don Patterson / middle left foto Gerry Maier / middle left photo Gary Ulrich and Don Patterson / lower left photo  John Patton / lower right photo Dave Meher.In 1965 and 1966 they were the house band at the Honeycomb a Go-Go which became the popular place for kids to dance and spelled the end of the Teen Hall . …..special thanks to Gary Ulrich for supplying the pictures as they seem to be about the only remaining record of the group. (See The J.A. Pann Co. and Springfield).  It would be nice to get some more photos of this group.

This is a banner that would run across the bottom of a page of the Medicine Hat News to promote local dances. The Legion and the Elks Club used this extensively as well as the Corona Ballroom who did this twice a week for many years. This one was from March 11-1966 and promoted a Twist Contest between mayor Harry Veiner and the Honeycomb go-go girls..
