Album Notes

On March 17, 2013 the Dave Starky V, one of the hottest bands in the Houston,Texas area in the mid 1960's, went back into the studio to record four of their classic rock and roll arrangements: Runaway, Mojo, Suzie Q, and Gloria. It was their first studio session since the production of their record "Hey Everybody" / "Stand There", written by band member Pete Bas in 1965.

"Dave Starky V At It Again", contains the four new songs and as a bonus, their two original 1965 recordings which have been re-mastered by Rock Romano of Red Shack Studio fame.


The Dave Starky V was formed in April 1965. Joe Muscanere and Kevin Cooney were students at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas when they asked fellow students Dave Starky, Beau Biron and University of Houston student Pete Bas to join them. Starky had recently arrived from England, and he brought with him a unique style which was heavily influenced by the Rolling Stones, who were not well known in the United States at the time.

The British invasion was at it's peak in the mid 60's and the band began receiving publicity immediately, especially from the number one DJ in Houston, Buddy McGregor at KNUZ. There were live performances on McGregor's show, a fan club was established and the group signed a recording contract with the producer Ray Rush, who represented many local artists, including B. J. Thomas and the Triumphs. In July of 1965 the band recorded “Hey Everybody” and “Stand There,” written by Pete Bas, and the single was released that fall. Both tracks are still being played today by oldies stations all over the world and they can be found on several compilation albums featuring American garage bands of the era.

On July 4, 1965 the band performed at Garner State Park in central Texas in one of the first outdoor concerts ever held in the state. Sponsored by KNUZ, many of Houston's hottest bands were featured, including future mega stars Mickey Gilley and B. J. Thomas.

As the year progressed the group opened for the Righteous Brothers at Houston's Music Hall and shared the stage with other touring groups, including Herman's Hermits and the Sir Douglas Quintet. They played all over the state, with various new members, until they eventually disbanded in February of 1967.

In 2007 the band was invited to perform at the “Rock and Roll Reunion” hosted by the University of St. Thomas. They were joind by other groups from the 60's and enjoyed their experience so much that have been meeting to visit and jam every year since, usually during the Christmas holidays. In December of 2012 they started discussing going back into the studio to record a few of their most popular songs. They were happy to discover that their old buddy Rock Romano's Red Shack Studio in Houston was available and the session was booked. A new CD, Dave Starky V At It Again was released in 2013.
