The Vagrants were a soul-influenced mid 60s garage rock band from Long Island, New York. The group first got together in 1965. The line-up was: Peter Sabatino (lead vocals), Leslie West (guitar), Larry West (bass), Jerry Storch (organ), and Roger Mansour (drums). The Vagrants hold the distinction of being one of the few garage rock bands who were signed to the folkie label Vanguard. The group recorded several songs for this label, with "I Can't Make a Friend" being the best known of the bunch. The band later signed with and recorded a few more singles for the Atco label in 1967.
