Huntington Complex

A band that Buzz Gilleland was in before joining The Society. Circa 1965-66.

Members: Dick Gimble - Lead Guitar & Lead vocals, Buzz Gilleland - Rhythm Guitar and Keyboard, Wally Proctor-Bass, Fred Knapp-Drums.

"Milestones: Placed second in city wide battle of the bands held at the Raleigh Hotel in downtown Waco.  Competed with The Knights Bridge Quintet, The One-Way Streets, and others."

"Covered bands like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Monkeys, etc.  The band members wore white turtle neck shirts, white pants, blue blazers, and black Beatle boots.  We mimicked Paul Revere and the Raiders heavily with synchronized steps and kicks while performing."

Thanks to Buzz Gilleland for the details on this band. No known recordings.
