The Accents (Garrett)

The Accents were a Minnesota group that recorded a string of great 45's in 1964. Minnesota was home to many very talented bands in the 1960's. The Accents were discovered by local record producer George Garrett, who took an interest in the band after seeing them perform at the popular Minneapolis teen club. Soma Records (1957-1967) would sometimes distribute local artist recordings on smaller record labels such as Bangar and Garrett. This 45 was released on both labels. The history of the band can be found here
