Instrumentation included: lead guitar, two rhythm guitars, bass, lead vocals, and drums. They had gigs at the New York World's Fair of 1964 at the New York State Pavillion and United States Pavillion and at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, Operation Head Start, and The Cafe Wha. Joan and Linda met as toddlers. Gerrianne met Joan in 3rd grade. Linda and Gerrianne met in Girl Scouts. Their manager got their picture in the paper. Vanesa, Barbara, and Jean came as a package deal. The band was set. They practiced at each others' houses and the music kept them grounded, creative, and out of trouble. They had an opportunity to audition with the Stones' manager but Roberta gave up the drums. They disbanded in 1968, because they went to college. Joan and Gerriane continued writing music into the late 1970's and early 1980's. Linda, Cecille and Gerrianne became teachers and used music in their classrooms, over the years. They were unique in that they were all different colors, yet, got along well with each other.
