the Angry / Silvertones / In Crowd


Canton, 1962-6

The Silvertones were formed by some Canton school students in 1962. After some personnel changes, they changed their name to the Angry and quickly became one of the region's most popular bands, taking the house band slot at the Riveria club in Canton.

In 1966 the band recorded four songs at Mills Audio which were shopped by the band's manager, Larry Zagray, to Reprise records. Reprise signed them and the group decided to relocate to the New York City area, changing their monicker to the In Crowd. While in NYC they played the dance club circuit including shows opening for the Vagrants. In the fall of 1966, just when the band was working on their recordings, the draft board called and the band was forced to move back to Canton where they called it a day.
