Another Rare Doo-Wop Picture


I know the name of this group The Blue Tones and their members;Mickey Kirkpatrick, Myron Murry,Danny Ornung and Jimmy Theros. I also know they’re from Indianapolis or the surrounding area.What area of the city they’re from? Did they ever record? What did they sound like?.

Mik (Michael) Kirkpatrick was my father - top left in the picture. From Rochester, MN originally, the band played at the John Marshall senior High School prom in '63. No recordings, but after playing the senior prom they became one of Jerry Lee Lewis' warmup bands on his regional tour. They left for Los Angeles following that tour, to make it "big" and played at the "Whiskey" on Sunset Strip.
