Hi All!
I was getting a little bored today even though I should be packing for the next "gig" :-), so I decided to post some photos of 'The Jive 5' from 1966 on.., and some memorabilia from circa 1960 on...

This album jacket cover shot is of the "original" Jive Five:

Hi S.S.

I have a friend who told me that a member of The Jive Five lives across the street from her on Herkimer Street. Could it be Gene whom she's speaking of??

Good photos as usual S.S.

Hey Juice;
I haven't spoken to him in a few years, I did hear at that time he wasn't doing to well and had to move from where he was living. It could possibly be him, one of his younger brothers, or Casey, whom all live in Brooklyn. Hell, maybe even Best. (?) Can't say, as I said it's been years. Bobby saw "Sam" recently and he got a kick out of the fact that I married Jimmy Scott (chuckle)!! Vonnie said he couldn't get over it, just kept shaking his head and repeating "Jeanie married Jimmy Scott"!
Too funny...LOL!!!

johneflat;
This is "thee" Jive Five, anyone else using their name is either imposters or copied the name because this is the first group to have the name. I don't remember that song but it's possible(?) I thought someone else recorded "Shake A Tailfeather"(?)

You're welcome S.S.

I'm editing some video, so that I'll have some good pics from the show. I was trying to create a gif file, showing Carls' split. I just can't get it down under 50k. I'll figure it out though. I'm a determined kinda fella :-)
