Fabulous Cinners@Boom Boom Room

Fred Burke from St. Petersburg, Fla., reached out to me recently and sent me this snap of his band, the Fabulous Cinners, playing in 1966 at a place for which I’ve seen ads but never before photos – the Boom Boom Room, 3736 Main St. Fred says the Cinners also played such clubs as King Arthur’s Lounge, 1115 E. Armour Blvd., Lakeside Ballroom and the Olathe Naval Air Station “during the Vietnam era every Sunday night for returning troops.” That’s Fred on vocals with Les Bogal (bass), Rich Bronson (guitar) and Russ Goff (drums.) Note the red Kustom amp in the background! The Fabulous Cinners put out 45s on the Damon Studio label that were distributed regionally. Does anyone have any memories of the Fabulous Cinners to share? Please do so in the comments.
