The Outsiders: A Brief Biography

    The year was 1965.   In Cleveland, Ohio, a successful area rhythm and blues band called Tom King and The Starfires pooled their meager resources to record an original song composed by Tom King and his brother-in-law Chet Kelly.  "Time Won't Let Me" was submitted to regional Capitol Records promotional people.     They immediately determined the song to be a Top 40 AM radio hit.  With the record company behind them, Tom King and the Starfires were renamed The Outsiders, and "Time Won't Let Me" began to receive AM radio station airplay across the U.S.          Gathering airplay and live performance momentum, The Outsiders, fronted by a young lead singer named Sonny Geraci, began making their reputation in pop music history.  "Time Won't Let Me" climbed to #5 on the Billboard record industry national charts.     The Group's popularity led to television appearances on entertainment shows like Dick Clark's "Where The Action Is", "Hullabaloo", "Shindig", and local teen shows across the United States.       Subsequent Outsiders releases also received radio airplay success on the National Charts.  Their second single, "Girl In Love", reached #11.  "Respectable" reached #15, and "Help Me Girl" reached #21.   Members changed in the original Outsiders lineup, and like so many groups of the era, the band slowly faded into Top 40 music history.   That is...until now!   The Outsiders, now fronted by original drummer Ricky Biagiola (Baker), and accompanied by his most capable band.  Members include guitarist Michael Abraham, keyboardist Rik Williger, bassist Greg DePaulo and guitarist Jimmy Aschenbener.  The Outsiders are BACK! Reproducing their classic radio hits, along with popular Top 40 AM radio songs from the 60's,
