History

Detroit Vibrations

Frijid Pink began life as the Detroit Vibrations with Rick Stevers on drums and Tom Harris playing bass. While playing a gig at the Chatterbox in late 1967 Gary Thompson a brash but talented young guitarist, approached the band with the intent of becoming a member After auditioning, he along with another local guy with a powerful voice, Tom Beaudry, later known as Kelly Green, were invited to join the group. Dan Yehley, was also added to the band playing guitar.

Changes

With the line-up now set, the search began for a new name to fit the group. While painting his mother’s bathroom in the very trendy color at the time, Rick Stevers and Dan Yehley came out of the room with pink all over him including in their hair. With it being fashionable for women to have their hair frosted, Rick’s mother suggested ‘Frosted Pink’. That name just didn’t fly, but without losing her train of thought she looked over at her Frigidare refrigerator and blurted out “Frigid Pink!” The ‘g’ was changed to ‘j’ and the name was born.

Debut of Frijid Pink

The new line-up was still performing as the Detroit Vibrations using their original set list. While headlining a packed music theater called The Harbor Lights, in Ecorse, Michigan (where such groups as The First Edition Band featuring Kenny Rogers) the group played from their old set list dressed in their usual Motown look.
