Sixties, Seventies and beyond...

Howard Morrison one of the Aliens Showband members from way back... dropped in to the Rotorua Library the other day looking for the following article from the Daily Post published August 4th 1979.

Here's an excerpt...

"The Alien's Showband replace Joe Daniels Inc. as the resident group in the DB Hotel Lounge bar, is a family band going back 20 years. The group comprises Howard (Rhythm guitar), Shane (bass) and James (Drums) Morrison, their cousin Tom Roberts (lead guitar) who was brought up with them as a brother, and vocalist Stormie Daley who is James sister-in-law.

The boys started out in 1959 as the 'Cascades', four years later changing their name to 'Dynamics'. In 1964 the group became the first resident band at the Palace Tavern coining the title 'Aliens'"

Howard says they are all still alive and well and get together from time to time to reminisce.
