The Dynamic Drifters were formed in 1963 with original members Stan
Pollmann, lead guitar, Bill Waugh, drums, Bob Letheby, rhythm guitar, and
Terry Zobel on bass. Stan, Bill, and Bob had formerly played with
The Crusaders and Little Caesar and The Romans. Terry had previously played
and recorded with thepopular Norfolk group, Little Joe and the Ramrods.
Soon after, former Ramrod drummer Denny "Dino" Reeves replaced
Bill Waugh, and keyboardist Jerry Storovich took over for Stan
when he left the group in early 1964.
That summer, the group traveled to Minneapolis, where they recorded "40
Days/Let's Have A Party" at Kaybank Studios on the Bangar label.
The single had regional success and is a hot item among record collectors
today. Reeves left for college, and the band reformed with Letheby,
Zobel, Don Gartner on guitar, and Larry "Porky" Young on drums.
The Drifters traveled the midwest extensively and became known for
their "Paul Revere" dance steps and outfits. Other members who
played with the group during this era were Sue Schumann and Lee
Froelich on keyboards as well as Bill Ainsworth on sax.
The Dynamic Drifters disbanded in 1966, due to military service and college.
