the Motley Crew
The Motley Crew came from Cleveland western suburbs. The band included Lee Montgomery (vocals, keyboards), Joe Flannery (guitar), Greg Ornas (guitar), Dan Horton (bass), and Oliver Perry (drums).
"We were a local cover band in 1967-8. We played the Hullabaloos, CYOs, and even Boston Mills. The Teen Fair was a blast, We got to hear some great local bands" (Lee Montgomery)
The 1967 Teen Fair had over 200 bands playing! The Penny Arcade won the competition.
Lee Montgomery joined the Kismet Maze - "The only reson I left Motley Crew was the opportunity to play with Russ Jankowski who I became friends with at Tri-C in Parma. I remember thinking 'I'm in a band with the Tree Stumps!"
There are no studio recordings of the band.
Thanks to Lee Montgormery.
