Royal Clefs

from Vancouver BC
Broken Up - Confirmed: Jun. 4, 2009 (Archived)
The Royal Clefs were formed in 1959 in Vancouver when they worked regularly in clubs and dance halls Downtown and around the East Side. The group decided to travel to Montreal to find work but along the way met an agent who found work for them and sent them back to the West Coast. The group worked up and down the Pacific Coast for two years, playing show material and dance music. Eventually, a new agent landed the group an engagement in Las Vegas. Shortly afterward, some members left the band and others came in to change the sound to a more commercial approach. The group disbanded in early Sixties.
