The New Group Members:
Dick Herges, Dennis McDermott, Dewey Hunt Charlie Gugel, Jerry Selix, Jim Olson, Jerry Adams
The band began in 1965 in Aberdeen, SD as an offshoot of "The Group", when due to losing a couple of members due to graduation, decided to expand and re - name the band. They started performing at school dances & ballrooms throughout SD, ND & Minnesota. Quickly became an area favorite, playing rock n roll and rhythm & blues.
**They were undefeated in 4 "Battle of the Bands". The biggest being a 22-band battle sponsored by KQWB & Herbst Department Store in Fargo, ND.
**The New Group recorded a single "Knock On Wood" at United Audio in Mpls, MN that got quite a bit of airplay on area radio stations.
