the Pilgrims

Cleveland, 1964-5

A Cleveland group that included Glenn Schwartz and Dennis Chandler on guitars, with Pete Dragas (bass) and Ron Harkai (drums). They got in with Windsor, Ontario radio station CKLW (which was very popular in Cleveland) and played opening gigs for many 'name' groups. They recorded one 45 on the Note label (named after the teen club).

After the Pilgrims, Schwartz joined the service, while Ron Harkai joined Tom King and the Starfires just in time to be part of the "Time Won't Let Me" recording. Dennis Chandler has had a long history in Cleveland music.
