I worked from time to time in the 70's and 80's at Disney Florida with Harvey Lang, Prima's drummer 1957-58. Fine fellow even though I once counted 27 separate surfaces set up around him to bang on. He always enjoyed reminising about his Vegas days.
Jimmy Vincent was Prima's drummer from 1944-50. When The Witnesses recorded in 1956 the drummer was Bobby Morris, then Harvey, then Paul Ferrara, then Bobby Morris '59 + 60. Jimmy Vincent returned from 1962-1974 and the drummer on his last album in 1975 was Joey Vespe.
Earlier drummers from 1933-1940 were (in order) Stan King, Sam Weiss, George Pemberty, Godfrey Hirsh, Oscar Bradley, John Castaing, Jack Powers.
