And the Answer Is . . .

The group shown in yesterday's photo was "The Country Gentlemen." Here's what Linda had to say about the group:
This group was comprised of Navy and Air Force. The lead guitarist with the double neck was Gene Garland, RM2 (worked in USTDC J-6); the other guitarist was Jim Harris, SSGT, Air Force; the bass player was named Curly (unsure of service) and the fiddle player and drummer we don't remember their names or services. Also, not pictured was Jim's wife, Nancy, who sang female lead.
This group played at the Linkou Club regularly and were very popular. Everytime they played the club was packed and if you didn't arrive early it was standing room only.
If anyone has more photos of the Linkou, especially interior shots, please send 'em my way. The guys at the Linkou website are also on the lookout for them.
