In memory of my North Forsyth High School classmate, J. C. Johnson, here’s a photo of the Vee Jays combo. J. C. is holding the microphone and is the man standing (jumping?) second from the left.
They were playing at the Carolina Theatre for a dance party.
J. C. sang at many school functions and also performed at the Downtown-A-Go-Go.
If you have memories of seeing or hearing J. C. Johnson when he was performing, please share your memories.
Here are a few photos of the Downtown-A-Go-G0, but J. C. is not in these photos. Dick Bennick is the man in the center of the second photo. Can anyone identify the band?
The Downtown-A-Go-Go Club was located at 409 N. Spruce Street, above the Woolworth store that faced West Fourth Street. The entrance to the club was nearly at the back of the Woolworth Building, practically out of sight at left in the photo below.
If anyone recognizes someone in these images, please let me know. And, please share your memories of the Downtown-A-Go-Go.
