Biography

In the 1960’s Oscar and two of his brothers formed the band “Oscar and the Majestics”. It wasn’t long before the popularity of the band began to grow in NW Indiana (known as “the region”). Developing their music in this industrial area led to their unique hard driving sound. They became leaders in the development of a style known as “”. Every week they packed the Marquette Park Pavilion in Gary, Indiana, and it wasn’t long before their popularity spread throughout the entire mid-western United States. The wide variety of their recordings demonstrates their musical versatility beginning with the beats of “Come on Willie” and “No Chance Baby” to the melodious sounds of “My Girl is Waiting”. As accomplished as those songs are, Oscar and the Majestics are most famous for their hard driving garage rock and roll as demonstrated in “Got to Have Your Lovin”, “I Can’t Explain”, and “Soulfinger”. With limited exposure the music of Oscar and the Majestics has traveled throughout the world. Their music is currently being released by Sundazed Records.


Don’t take this as Gospel, but this is how I remember Oscar & the Majestics:
I believe they were from Gary, Indiana as I can remember them playing at the Marquette Park Pavillion quite regularly. Hamod is Oscar’s last name.
