Eight more days ’til Courtmen show

For those of you that would like an opportunity to see the guy that sang LOUIE LOUIE with the Kingsmen, you’ve got a chance next weekend. Jack Ely, who left the band before it had the big hit, and wasn’t allowed to rejoin, is doing a big show with his Courtmen next weekend..

The National Guard Armory in Ontario, Oregon will be the place for a big show called “It Will Never Happen Again” that’s taking place on Saturday, August 29. Along with Jack Ely & the Courtmen, there’s also going to be Crystal Ship and the Sundowners, two other Northwest bands that haven’t played for something like 40 years….?

The show is a benefit for the Southeast Regional Food Bank of Oregon.

The official website for this event is Bob Dye‘s Ontario Armory rock & roll page at:

There’s also more details at the Ontario Argus Observer article.

Here’s a little preview of what to expect…

    According to Jack, the show was completely sold out, and raised some serious money for the food bank! WONDERFUL!
