50s - Infinity


The 50's version of Infinity was Darryl, Dave, Rick Wilson, and Mark McKenzie.
We also had a keyboard player named George, and then Mike Lenoir joined us.
We played some big venues, like the Melbourne Auditorium for the Harris Christmas party.
Ironically, this version of the band made more money than the rock version. We did have a lot of fun playing these oldies!
