If you were or are in a 60's garage band, have a website, and would like to exchange links please contact us.
There was yet another "The Other Half" that was organized in 1964 at Hartwick College, Oneonta New York. The members being Jeff Lyman (vocals), Steve Harrigan (lead guitar and keyboard), Peter Lipsio (bass), Glenn Schenenga (rythm guitar) and Bob Kirsch (drums). The band performed together through out the North East from 1964 until 1968 when four of the five members graduated and went about their seperate ways. The band enjoyed a strong local collegiate followiing and had two hit 45's produced by Bell Sound (later Bell Records) in NYC. In August of 2008, the former members located one another once again following a forty year hiatus and plan a reunion in the near future. All members are retired professionals who long ago left their musical roots to pursue different carreers. We wish to express our condolences to the Chicago "Other Half" for their loss of their dear friend and Rythm guitarist, Fred. While he may be gone we are certain that he will never be forgotten!
