Musicians
    (1965-1972)
    Born in San Antonio, Texas
    1969 Line-Up:
    Doug Sahm, vocals and guitar
    Augie Meyers, keyboards
    Harvey Kagan, bass guitar
    Johnny Perez, drums
    Frank Morin, saxophone
    Recorded the singles 'She's About A Mover' (1965), 'The Rains Came' (1966) and 'Mendocino' (1969)
    They were presented as a British invasion band despite being Texans.
    They were photographed in silhouette for their first album to hide the fact that several of the band members were Hispanic.
    Returning from a tour of Europe, they were busted at the Corpus Christi airport for marijuana possession (1965).
    After his release, Doug Sahm broke up the band, moved to San Francisco, then re-formed the band with a new line-up.
    They combined Tex-Mex music with garage rock.
    Although their song 'Mendocino' only reached #27 on the US charts, it sold over 3 million singles in Europe.
    Doug Sahm and Augie Meyers continued working together after the band's break-up, most notably as members of the Texas Tornados.
    'She's About A Mover' was named the #1 Texas song by 'Texas Monthly.' (2004)
