the Shillings

Dayton, 1964-8

The Shillings were a group of Dayton high school students.

The Shillings recorded two 45s which feature a nice melodic teen garage sound with obvious British Invasion influence, as you would expect from a band named after an English coin. The records were released on the Dayton Band Company label. The Dayton Band Company was in fact a music store.

Band member Rick Bashore was later in Sunnygoode Street.
