The Jerms Story
The Jerms Story, by Jake (aka Tom) Jacoby. "...It was 1963 in Topeka Kansas. Four guys who went to Highland Park High decided to put a band together. Galen Senogles (guitar), Larry Burton (guitar), Mike Doyle (drums) and myself on bass. We played parties and some bar gigs and started to make some money. Galen had an uncle who was a commercial artist for a major magazine. He put together some art work and the little guy who was the 'Jerm' was born. He also did some caricatures of us later on. He was very instrumental in the continuity of ads and posters." From Kansas Musical Artists.
