This week’s Memory Jogger, submitted by Jim Butts of McConnellsburg, pictures a local 1970s band “The Everyday Needs,” at the old American Legion Post 561. The band played for proms, picnics, weddings, banquets and at the local fair. They performed at clubs in the tri-state area and appeared on Channel 10’s Big John Riley Show and Channel 25’s Battle of the Bands competition. Band members, pictured, left, are: Ronnie Martz - organ; Larry Gerhart - bass guitar; Delbert Oberholzer - lead guitar; Denny Buterbaugh - drums; and Jim Butts - lead singer. Loy Garber was instrumental in getting the band organized in the early days. Other locals affiliated at various times were Denny Cisney, manager; Mike Stenger, lead guitar; and Gary Marshall, drums. 43p1.jpg
