Night Shadows Biographical Information

The Night Shadows, one of the earliest garage bands in America, started performing in the 1950's at a time when Rock & Roll was very young and Rhythm & Blues had reached maturity. Playing the type of music that often created racial turmoil in the deep South, the band pioneered the way for the plethora of rock groups that came along after the English "invasion" of 1964. The Square Root of Two , a 1968 psychedelic album by The Night Shadows, is valued at $1000+ in Jerry Osborne's 1997 Rockin' Records catalog.
