Home / Biography / Esquires


Not to end up being confused with other ’60s organizations called the Esquires — like the spirit group who had popular with “CAN GET ON Up,” as well as the Texan group who did several garage area classics in “View Day time” and “SERIOUSLY, SERIOUSLY” — these Esquires hailed from Springfield, Massachusetts. They’re best-known for growing, with some staff changes, in to the Bold, who do a fantastic Paul Revere & the Raiders-like garage area rocker in 1966, “Gotta GET SOME GOOD” (as anthologized on Pebbles, Vol. 9). As the Esquires, they do eke out one obscure middle-’60s single within the small Salem label, pairing a regular cover of “Tremble a Tail Feather” using the English Invasion-derived garage area rocker “Down the Monitor,” penned from the group’s Steve Walker. Both edges of the solitary are available on the Daring compilation Lullaby Opus Four, which provides the whole 1969 recording by Daring, and both edges from the Bold’s two previous singles (acknowledged to both Daring and Steve Walker & the Daring).
