Listen to The Apostles GREAT instrumental:

Six Pack


Here's a great memory from Paul Ritter:

As for the band The Apostles, I remember them well as I grew up with the sax player Mark Trentmann and his brother Norm. Norm and I were the "band boys" setting up the instruments, sound and light systems. Norm was responsible for the equipment, built some of it and repaired all of it. I helped when I could, setting up and taking it all down, filling the band's old truck and then enjoying pizza at Monti Bello's on Weber Rd until late at night. That would have been in the late '60s. Mark now lives in southern California.
