Gene Cornish & the Unbeatables played mostly out of New Jersey.
Gene Cornish also play in the traveling band for Joey Dee & the Starlighters (Peppermint Twist fame) which is where he met felix cavalerri and eddie brugati of the rascals. The Starlighters traveling band also counted jimmy james, aka jimmy hendrix and joe pesci (home alone & my cousin vinny).

He still grew up in Rochester, his stuff is pretty easy to find here. His first 45 with LONNIE MAE with GENE & HIS SATELITES was on Fine, a Rochester label.

No question, he got his roots in music in Rochester. He moved to Rochester from Ontario, Canada as a young boy. His father had a bait shop on St. Paul Blvd. down near Summerville and he went to Franklin High School. Also, one of the videos of the song about the Freedom Train there's an extra line in ther tat says "watch our Rochester, we're comin' on through". The video is on you tube.

A bit later on he got involved with the local band the Brass Button, producing a 45 and writing a song for them. I think that
was around 1968.
The one Unbeatables LP is a fake live thing, including some of his 45s, some that were just released under Gene Cornish. It says it was recorded Live At Palisades Amusement Park.
Thanks for the info, going to look for that video.

I really enjoyed reading this thread and it brought back some great memories. I was lucky to see some of the bands my favorite one being typical blimp. they were amazing. although I never got to see them I also really liked wee 4.
neat also to see neal marvel mentioned. I got to jam with him a few times. he had a band with his sisters that I thought was pretty cool.
the quirks were great too.

Anyone care to help me out with any Webster musicians that are still in the area? I am working on a feature about a band member of Toots and Maytals, and they supposedly own a store in Webster...
A guy from The Maytals with a store in Webster? That's news to me, and I know Toots personally, but if it's true I'd love to know more. Toot's road manager, Mike, is originally from Penfield but lives in California.

Remember the name 'Stage 3' but can't say I knew any of the members. Certainly do recall Caeser's II....downstairs in the Empire Mall. Lots of red velvet on the walls. My band Mushroom practiced upstairs in the offices of Independent Postal Service (Bob Rice?), where our sax player, Joey Z, worked. Later (1980's) Caeser's II became 'Tiffany's Party' and I played there with MAJESTICS with Rudy Valentino, Ron Stackman and Lou LaVilla. We confused the heck out of them.

One of the best, if not the best band of the early seventies was
freedom Tree, with Jimmy Culp, Terry Lasaponara, Louie Fusilli,
Jimmy Gombatto and a great snger named Nancy. They played an
oldies set last and the place went crazy.......also did great Four Seasons medleys.....became a tour band for Ramada Inns.
