The Oceans (Pla Me)

The Oceans were from Athens,Ohio. Band members consisted of Mike Cunningham (Vocals, Guitar, Sax,Tamborine), Jim Dean (Drums), Richard Brown (Bass, Trumpet) and Ed Lonas (Guitar). Three of the four band members attended Ohio University. From 1964 to 1967 the group performed mostly around the Athens/Belpre area in south east Ohio. The Oceans released their only record on the Pla Me label in late1966. Below is a photo of the group performing in a Battle of the Bands event and newspaper clipping showing them as the winner of that contest.
