Whenever Link was back home in Washington DC, he called upon THE PACK to back him up. Featuring John Van Horn, and Ed Cynar, two Ray Men from the very early 1960’s.
|THE PACK served duty as Link's Ray Men in the late 70’s and early 80’s. They released two 45’s on Slash Records. Ed Cynar and John Van Horn served as part of Link's Ray Men in the 60’s, and Ruth Newton was part of the duo Ruth and Sherry (Wray, Vernon's daughter). They released one 45 in 1969. |
|If you made an inquiry on booking The Pack, below is a press release you would have received.|
|The Pack are available for bookings and at times as a package, splitting the bill with Link Wray. For more information, feel free to write or call.|
|There was a period in the history of Rock and Roll not so long ago when the lines had yet to be drawn. There were no Beatles, Stones, Mods, rockers, hippies or rednecks. No punk rock, country rock, etc. and it was every man for himself in the music world as well as on the street. Rock and Roll music was something you lived rather than labeled. Few people analyzed it, collected it seriously or even cared if the records were scratched, just as long as it had that beat.|
|In the Washington D.C. area if you weren't getting the "Big Beat" on WEAM or the Milt Grant TV show you were probably daring enough to go down town to The Famous, The Rocket Room, Benny's Rebel Room or smoke filled beer joints on the southeast side where the bands wailed the standards and the worlds of musicians and the street sometimes clashed.|
