The Continentals With Skip & Bill

“The Continentals.” We thought we were totally cool because we wore the latest trend, Cardigan sport jackets with no collars bought from Arnold’s Men’s Wear. I bought a lot of show clothes from Arnold.

At that time the St. Petersburg-based group consisted of Jim Scott on guitar and lead vocals, Russ Hoyle on bass, Jimmy Powell on drums, me on Tenor Sax, Don Pascoe on Baritone Sax and Danny Beeman on trumpet. We played out on the beach at the Madeira Beach Recreational Center, the Suntan Club on St. Pete. Beach, the Joker’s Club and the other usual gigs in Bradenton, Sarasota and Clearwater.
