This nine piece, Fort Bend
County TX based band has roots that go back to the early days of rock 'n roll and also launched the career of 5-time Grammy award winner B.J. Thomas. They had several #1 hits on Houston's KILT top 40 Survey in the early 60's ("Lazy Man", "I Know It's Wrong", "I've Got a Feeling", "Billie and Sue"), recorded the still popular (and still played nightly at the Garner dance pavilion) "Garner State Park", and, of course, recorded the #8 song in the nation in 1966 - "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" - just prior to B.J. beginning his solo career.
The band (which began in
1959 in a garage in Rosenberg) continued to perform until disbanding in
1980. Then in 1992 the original members (minus B.J., though he joined
them in a
reunion concert in 1993) reunited and began our Bring Back The Times reunion tour which continues to delight "Baby Boomers" to date.
They perform hits from the 50's and 60's (including their own) and transport our audiences back to the days of '57 Chevies, Prince's hamburgers, sock hops (they played at a bunch of them), junior-senior proms (ask Shara Fryer -
they played at hers), the KILT Back to School Concerts at Sam Houston Coliseum (three years running), the Larry Kane Show, and the annual Larry Kane Caravan of Stars that performed at Garner State Park every July 4th (ditto on both those).
Since their reunion in
1992 they have appeared on "Alvin at Night" and "Good Morning Houston";
made a guest appearance at the “Lovin’ Feelings Concert” in 1993; have
been featured in the Houston Chronicle (and in a host of local papers in
small towns within 100 miles of Houston -- Rosenberg, Wharton, El Campo,
Bay City, Eagle Lake, Hallettsville, Schulenburg, Weimar, Columbus,
Shiner, La Grange, Victoria, Angleton, etc.); have been featured on
Oldies 94.5; are featured on the front cover of the 1995
Richmond-Rosenberg Yellow Pages; are listed as “One of the most
fascinating things about Fort Bend County” in the February 2013 edition
of FORT BEND FOCUS magazine; and are now back to doing some performances
each year with B.J. Thomas. The TRIUMPHS continue to delight fans (old
and young alike) at county fairs, class reunions, benefits, corporate
gatherings, and at old dance halls (some of which are the same old
historic Texas dance halls of those early years) along the “reunion tour
Their music menu for the evening will range from Elvis to the Eagles,
Wilson Pickett to Chicago, the Beatles to Bobby Bland, Al Green to
Lynyrd Skynrd, George Strait to Pink Floyd, and maybe even a polka or
two. They have a true understanding of all the nostalgia behind their
music because they were an important part of the era that launched Old
Tyme Rock 'N Roll. So come and check out some of their performances and
rekindle some fond memories that will take will take you back to the
best days of your life.
