Joe Nardone Sr., well known in Pennsylvania as a concert promoter and founder of the Gallery of Sound music stores, started his band in the early ‘60s. They became the house band at the Sans Souci Park Dancehall during the summer and the Stardust Ballroom in Wilkes-Barre during the colder months. They were the backing band for artists like Neil Diamond, Sam The Sham, Dion and others when they came to town.
The All Stars were so popular they were asked to make a few recordings for national labels (Red Bird, Madison and Times Square). The first, “Caravan Rock,” came out on Madison Records in 1965, while the second, “Shake a Hand,” was released by Red Bird Records in 1967. This Record Store Day 2019 release is a four track red vinyl 7" big hole record featuring songs from the band's single releases in the mid ‘60s. Pressed at Furnace Record Pressing. NOTE: This is being released in conjunction with Gallery of Sound Records in Pennsylvania and will have a heavy focus in that region.
