Regarding bands that started in the 50s . . .

I'd like to say that "The Boondockers" (see http://www.theboondockers.com ) 
actually started in 1959. Actually at the time the Boondockers consisted of 
a folk song duo with me (guitar plus 5 string banjo) and Frank Owen 
(gutbucket). We developed into a quartet (piano, bass, banjo and washboard) 
in the 60s and then in the late 60s and early 70's spread out more into OKOM 
and added other instruments along the way. Today we're a pretty solid 7 
piece OKOM group but with direct ties to our primitive origins.

Respectfully submitted,
