Biography

‘The Peppermint Rainbow’ were a / group from Baltimore, Maryland, known for their close male and female vocals and good-feeling vibe. They formed in 1967 under the name ‘New York Times’ and played local gigs in the mid-Atlantic states before changing their name to the ‘Peppermint Rainbow’ in 1968. They were signed to Decca Records at the behest of Cass Elliot, who saw them play and sang with them on-stage when they performed a medley of Mamas & Papas tunes.

One of the many talented acts to pass quickly through the pop music firmament and disappear before most listeners could even learn their name, the ‘Peppermint Rainbow’ released one of the finest ever sunshine-pop records ‘Will You Be Staying After Sunday’, their sole full-length release.

Unlike so many other groups of their kind, this band was not a studio concoction, for years the members had gigged around their native Baltimore, honing and perfecting their special harmony-rich vocal blend. Their dedication and commitment to craft paid off when they recorded Sunday, which swoops and soars with joyous vocals and piping horns at every turn. Among the best tracks are “Green Tambourine” and “Run Like the Devil”.

Members:Bonnie Lamdin - vocals, Pat Lamdin - vocals, Doug Lewis - guitar, Tony Carey - percussion, Skip Harris - bass
