Wes Dakus and The Rebels
Wes Dakus & The Club 93 Rebels formed in 1958. In 1960 
they were signed with Quality Records, and released their 
first album in the same year titled El Ringo. They toured 
with such artists as Buddy Knox.
In 1965 The Wes Dakus Album - With The Rebels was released 
and helped the band create several singles. In 1967 their 
album was issued on KAPP as "Wes Dakus's Rebels". In Canada 
the album was split into singles. RPM Magazine voted the band 
"Top Instrumental Group" in 1964 and 1965. The 1968 single 
"New Sound Of Wes Dakus" had no band involvement whatsoever 
and was a group of session musicians from Gary Paxton Studios 
who had recorded demos. Wes licensed two instrumental tracks 
from his Paxton sessions to complete his Capitol contract.
