The Syndicate

The Syndicate (shown above) was a “garage band” band I was in during my college days at Cal State Fullerton (1964-65).

In 1964 cousin Bill Patapoff (a bass guitarist) and myself (a guitarist) were both attending college when we decided to combine our musical ambitions and to form a band. We both figured it would be a good way to coup with otherwise predicable weekends.

After some searching we added a lead singer, lead guitarist and drummer, therein creating a five-member band known as The Syndicate.
