On August 14 at 7 p.m., the solid gold rock and roll of the party band, Tyn Tymes, will unite on the stage of the Carson Center to celebrate their soulful sounds of the 60s for the swingers and friends of Paducah Bank.
“After our Summer of 60 Concert two years ago,” said Paducah Bank President Waily Bateman, “we had so many people ask us if we’d consider doing another dance and concert, that we decided it was time to celebrate the sound of the 60s with an invitation to the Tyn Tymes. This group is another party band from the south who decided to reunite and bring back that magical music that people of a ‘certain’ age love and remember.’
Ten college students attending Auburn University, the University of Alabama, and Jacksonville State University formed the Tyn Tymes in 1966. Ah of the original band members were from Gadsden, Alabama. Their first job was held in a rented ball known as Plaidland, but soon these talented musicians were playing campuses all around the south.
In 1969, the group recorded their only record at the legendary Fame Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, The A side was an upbeat soul tune called Baby, I Love You and the B side was an instrumental entitled Bootleg.
During the five years the band was together, they performed for thousands of people and shared the stage with the likes of Bo Diddley, Archie Bell and the Drells, The Swinging Medallions, and The Pieces of Eight. “We have many great memories of playing for all the big parties on the campus of Ole Miss,” commented Rick Countrymen.” Archie Manning and most of the football team came to every party that booked the Tyn Tymes!”
This summer the friends and tans of Paducah Bank can experience some great “tymes” as guests of the bank at this special concert in August. Ticket information will be available at a later date, but mark your calendars now for the Tyn Tymes live. Let’s party!
