Tony and the Bandits (FLO-ROE)

Tony and the Bandits had it all on this record, great vocals, outstanding guitar, all around both sides were very nicely done. The group was formed in Cincinnati Ohio. The band consisted of Tony Brazis, Bill Bartlett (guitar), Bob Dudak (bass) and Bill Albaugh (drums). They recorded two original songs written by Tony Brazis, which was released on the Flo-Roe record label in 1965. It was a instant smash, "Oh no I can't lose" reached the top 10 in Cincinnati. The single was pick up by Coral records to release nationally. Tony and the Bandits recorded one more 45 , but do to disagreements, in 1966 they parted ways. Tony Brazis joined a group called the Chosen Lot which recorded a 45 in late 1966. The remaining band members went on to have successful careers with the Lemon Pipers.
