Patti and the Playboys

Bellaire,  1964-5

This group was a teen band fronted by Patti, with the boys as the rest of the band. They seem to have been mostly from the Bellaire area, across the Ohio river from much larger Wheeling, WV. They played in the tristate area.

The group recorded one 45 at Gateway in Pittsburgh. The A side "Tears" is a compelling minor key midtempo song that has sounds earlier than the 1964 release date. Northcraft and Connell are the writers on the label.
