the Coldwater Army

Marietta, 1967-70

Formed and managed by Roger Hock. Roger had previously had a record released by his band Brass Ltd. released on Gateway's Scotty Label out of Pittsburgh. The band included local Marietta High School students Dave Gifford (Keyboards), Jim Wilson (Cornet), John Wigal (Trumpet), Craig Warren (Singer), Gary Sewell (Singer), Mark Vass (Bass), and Hobie Burgnon (Drums).

They would play the local Marietta and Parkersburg WV area. They heard about Musicol from a local advertisement and drove there to record their sole 45 rpm record in 1969.
