As far as we know, there were only a handful of Rock bands from Charlotte that released a single. The Grifs, Paragons, 18th Edition (based in Hickory, with Charlotte ties), and the Damascans. When we put the book together, the only band we did not have info on was the Damascans. Imagine my surprise when I was told that their keyboardist, Toni Naples, had been at our book release party.
When I was finally able to interview Toni (which you can find on this site), she mentioned that she might have a couple of photos of the band. Thankfully, some photos did exist, and here is the band, in all their glory. My thanks to Toni for this.
