KENNY & THE KASUALS \ THE IMPACT SOUND OF.. 1967.
From 1964 to 1967, the top teen band in North Texas was a five piece combo called Kenny and the Kasuals. To earn the distinction of being number one was no easy task in those days as the competition was fierce. The hot R&B band The Nightcaps were still rockin' the city in the mid-sixties and younger rock bands were also filling local clubs and dances. Jimmie Vaughan was leading The Chessmen while his younger brother Stevie Ray was just starting to be noticed in a band called The Cast of Thousands. With competition from The Novas, The Briks, The Sensations, The Chaparrals, The Outcasts, The Five Americans and so many other talented groups in town, it meant that the choices when booking a band were huge.
But the top choice was always Kenny and the Kasuals.
"Impact" has been cited by Rolling Stone as one of the most collectible American albums ever.
