The Chevrons

The Chevrons, one of the most popular bands to come out of Omaha
 in the sixties, started out as an instrumental surf band but ultimately
 became known for their vocal harmonies.  Original members Greg Fox, Denny
 O'Malley, Phil Peterson, and Mike Vogltanz all attended the same grade
 school. Later additions to the band included Bob Lipsey, Al Morris, Mike
 Nuccio, John Roode and Larry Villone.  The Chevrons played a variety of
 music in the early days ranging from surf music to soul, including such
 groups as The Hollies, The Beatles, The Byrds, The Beach Boys, and the
 Mamas and the Papas. In the later stages, they performed hits by The
 Association, Three Dog Night, Jimi Hendrix, Chicago, and the Sons of
 Champlain.
The Chevrons were the first live band to play at Sandy's Escape in
 Omaha, and traveled with Sandy Jackson to record hops where they played
during his breaks. They also gave birth to, and opened Tanglewood Ranch, a
 successful teen club in North Omaha.  They were voted Omaha's most popular
band in a local newspaper poll in 1966, and opened for such name acts as The
Dave Clark Five, The Association, and The Zombies.
The Chevrons released two singles, "Love I Love You/Dream", which was
 released on both the MMC and Independence Labels, and "Mine Forever
 More/In the Depths of My Soul", released on the Independence label. These are

 considered some of the best pop/rock vocals ever to come out of the Midwest.
