Fred Harris and His Red Tops at Ben Hart's – April 5, 1957

Fifty-nine years ago this month on April 5, 1957, Fred Harris and his Red Tops were appearing at Ben Hart's at 651 Broadway in Lorain. (Ben Hart had not yet moved his nightclub out to West Erie Avenue.)

There's very little information online about Fred Harris and his band. Happily, some of the trio's recordings are on YouTube.

Anyway, it's Friday and the weekend is here! So, sit back and enjoy some rock and roll that you would have heard if you were in Ben Hart's that week back in April 1957.

Here's "Flang Dang Do."

Here's "The Bull."

Here's the "Organ Rocker."
