The Chancellors were formed as a small combo in David
City, Nebraska in 1962.  By 1967 the group had
 expanded to an 8-piece show band with members
 from the Columbus and Schuyler, Ne. areas.
 Many of the members then attended the
 University of Nebraska at Lincoln and relocated to
 Lincoln around that time.  By attracting musicians
 from other local and regional bands, the
 Chancellors became one of the most successful and
 popular show-bands in the Midwest. They won both
 the KOIL Teen Fair Boss Band Battle in Omaha over
 50 other bands and the Omaha Midwest Battle of
 the Bands over 87 other bands which garnered them
 a contract with Liberty Records, in 1967.
The Chancellors opened up for such notables as
 The Who, Herman's Hermits, The Beach Boys, The Blues
 MaGoos, The Detroit Wheels, The McCoys and The
