The Lady Birds were the first all female band.
They were on Shindig, opened up for the Rolling Stones,
went to View Nam on the Bob Hope Tour and played at Gazzarri's.

This was a great band and a favorite of mine. I thought it was
important that I added them to my site.

Big Takeover Magazine 2003
The Left Banke were a late 1960's band from New York with a unique sound. Critics labeled them "baroque-pop" due to the classical influences in their music, mostly due to then 16 year old keyboardist/songwriter Michael Brown's classical background and 18 year old Steve Martin Caro's beautiful haunting voice. Quick fame, bruised egos, poor management and touring conditions, along with substance abuse caused the band to self destruct before the decade was over.
A few attempts to reform the group were made, but they never again had the success of the music they made on their first album.
