Sam & The Twisters

Come On Let's Go - Original Soundtracks (Sam and the Twisters)

Remember Sam Amato when he would bring The Twisters to Aus Donovan's ABC Lanes on State Street back in the '60s. Bill Cowmey and I along with Liz Donovan tended bar for the wall-to-wall fans who attended the Saturday night shows. If fact, the crowds became so large that Aus hired security guards and a guard dog to maintain. control. Sam & The Twisters could not only rock them but also bring them in.
