The Bar-kays

Written by on 7. 1. 2019

The big hit! One of the most loved song by The Barkays! The american soul group formed in 1966 around mr. Otis Redding with the big hit „Soul Finger“. Unfortunately the original group had a bad plane crash accident where most of original members died. When Ben Cauley only survived he re-founded the group called The Bar-kays. Also James Alexander survived, luckily he was not on the board. So they got the new members:

  • Harvey Henderson (saxophone)
  • Michael Toles (guitar)
  • Ronnie Gorden (organ)
  • Willie Hall (drums)
  • and later Larry Dodson (a former member of the Stax group The Temprees – lead vocals)
