The Aluminum Marshmallow

According to drummer Tom Behrens:
The Aluminum Marshmallow Band was started in Sierra Madre in 1967 by 8th graders Tom Behrens (drums) and Greg Pineda (guitar) and their 7th grade brothers Gerry Pindea (bass) and Jerry Behrens (guitar). Did you get that? Are you with me so far? Anyway we played at the school talent show and blew away our arch rivals The Crystal Vision. We also played a few graduation parties and that was that. Until 2003 when I reconnected with Greg Pineda and proposed reforming the "Mallow" with high school friends Scott Rowe (keyboard), Bob Loza (bass) and Jim Hickey (guitar). Since then we've been playing parties, parks, clubs, carnivals... When we're on a big stage we fill out the band by adding percussionist Steve-o Powell. We also feature the Age Of Aquarius Horns consisting of but not limited to (did that make sense?) "Rusty" Ota, "Bo" Donaldson, "Splid" Kikuchi, Rick "Raghead" Engebretson and the incorrigible "Acid" Andy. We play songs from the 60's and 70's.
