This was a free concert held in the Marumsco Plaza shopping center parking lot. I think it was around May 1965. As I was only 12 at the time, I didn't know much about the band. I went with some friends who new a little about Link, and was told he had a few hits, and some albums. After the show, he came over to our car and I got an autograph. The guy was a pretty wild guitar player, in fact, he was playing a pretty wild looking guitar that day, a '63/'64 Gibson Firebird.

As this was during the British Invasion era, instrumental rock went the way of the Edsel, and Link Wray and the Raymen (aka Wraymen) faded away (although Link stayed in the music business for many years). I was told by one of the Raymen a few years ago there was a newspaper photo of this concert. Anyway, here's a good website dedicated to Link and the band:
