Saginaw YMCA 1965 - Y-A-Go Go
This rare video was filmed on a 8mm home movie camera at the YMCA gym in Saginaw, Michigan, the year was 1965. You can see the original band: Lanny, Dick, Keith, and Pete playing to local Saginaw fans. The YMCA, like Daniels Den, booked a lot of big acts during the years 1964-1967. Paul Revere and the Raiders played at the YMCA during that time period.
