the Mark V (Five) / Marque V / Sonny Flaharty and the Mark Five

Dayton, 1965-8

Sonny Flaharty hooked up with a few younger musicians to form this combo that played residencies at Dayton's most popular live music venues. The band changed members a few times, including keyboard player Mike Losekamp, who quit to join the Cyrkle (of "Red Rubber Ball" fame). They recorded two 45s, the first one on Counterpart (later issued on Philips) and the second on Warner Brothers as the Marque V.

More information on Sonny Flaharty will be added to the entry under his name.
