Biography

South Bend IN, United States

The Rivieras was a rock group, formed in South Bend, Indiana, USA in the early 1960s. The Rivieras featured Marty Fortson on vocals and guitar, Doug Gean playing the organ, second guitarist Joe Pennell and drummer Paul Dennert. The Rivieras was one of the later groups in the USA playing classical rock n’ roll. The group had their greatest hit in 1964 with “California Sun.” “California Sun” was one of the last songs on the U.S. charts before the “British Invasion”.

Both personal reasons and drastic changes in music led to a split-up of the group in 1966.
