Read an article on a post Bob Stanley on Guardian

"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, lovers of blues and soul music
and tourists, it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

SAM THE SHAM AND THE PHARAOHS WOLLY BULLY


MGM RECORDS 1965                                          SE-4297

 In Dallas in 1961, Sam formed "The Pharaohs,"
the name inspired from the costumes in Yul Brynner's
portrayal as pharaoh in the 1956 film The Ten Commandments.
The other members of "The Pharaohs" were Carl Miedke,
Russell Fowler, Omar "Big Man” Lopez and Vincent Lopez
(no relation to Omar). In 1962 the group made a record
that did not sell. The Pharaohs disbanded in 1962.
In May 1963, Vincent Lopez was playing for Andy and
The Nightriders in Louisiana. When their organist quit,
Sam joined. Andy and The Nightriders was Andy Anderson,
David A. Martin, Vincent Lopez and Sam. The Nightriders
became house band at The Congo Club near Leesville,
Louisiana. It was here that Sam took the name Sam the
Sham from a joke about his inability as a vocalist.
