1964 – The BEATLES performed at Jacksonville’s Gator Bowl on September 11, 1964. The concert was originally scheduled for Thursday 9/10, the day the city suffered a direct hit from Hurricane Dora.
1965 – The MODS: (l-r) James Rice; Larry Steele; Allen Collins; Taylor Corse This was our very first band, founded in the fall of 1964 by Allen Collins, Larry Steele, James Rice and Donnie Ulsh, (not pictured). Substituting for Donnie on this particular night was Taylor Corse, one of the guitarists of our rival band, the Squires. Within the next few months Ronnie Van Zant would join the Squires as their lead singer.
