the Dynamics

Cincinnati, 1963-6

The Dynamics were formed by Woodward and Walnut Hills High School students. The original band included Ken Newman (guitar), David Sapadin (drums), Richard Felson (bass), and Tom Dreskin (guitar). In 1965 Eric Waits joined on keyboards and vocals.

The Dynamics played local teen and school dances in the Cincinnati area. In 1966 the band disbanded when Ken, David, and Eric joined the Dauphine Street Blues. Tom Dreskin also joined the DSB later. No recordings were made by this band.
