The Kingsmen started out by performing at high school parties, teen dances, supermarket openings and fashion shows. They soon became one of the most popular local bands in the Portland area. The Kingsmen recorded their debut single "Louie Louie" in 1963 for the paltry sum of only $36 at Portland's Northwest Recorders studio. Read more...
