The Exceptions

The Chicago-based group the Exceptions — never to be confused with similarly named outfits in other cities — were formed by the end from the 1950s by 15-year-old Marty Grebb, a drummer and multi-instrumentalist, and his high-school friend Peter Cetera, who played bass. Another essential person in the clothing was guitarist/vocalist Kal David, whose name was occasionally put on leading end of their billing, as Kal David & the Exceptions. It had been under that name that they documented an individual, “Neglected Dreams” b/w “Small Everythings,” for the Ardore label in past due 1961. They performed a whole lot of gigs around Chicago, crossing pathways with famous brands Jimmy Reed and Paul Butterfield (with whom Grebb later on documented), and support groups like the Dells. Kal David & the Exceptions had been also authorized to Vee-Jay Information, and released a set of singles, “Searchin'” b/w “Daydreaming of You” (1964) and “Seriously House” b/w “Dancin’ Danny” (1965), on the Tollie Information subsidiary. Down the road, billed basically as the Exceptions after David’s departure (to become listed on the Rovin’ Kind, who later on became Illinois Rate Press), Grebb, Cetera, and 12-string guitarist Jimmy Vincent documented for Mercury, showing up with Butterfield and guitarist Mike Bloomfield for the Al Campbell LP Al Campbell Sings Where It’s At. The Exceptions split up in the middle-’60s, Grebb later on becoming a member of the Buckinghams and Cetera heading on to turn into a founding person in Chicago.
