Squires, The

The_SquiresFrom Bristol, Connecticut

The Squires were a mid-’60s teenage rock’n’roll group from Bristol. Previously called The Rogues when they released a 45 ‘It’s the Same All Over the World’ on the Peyton label in 1965, in 1966 they released their second 45, ‘Going All The Way.’ Atco, the record company behind the second release, pressured them to change their name to the Squires.

Members were Michael Bouyea (Drums, guitar, vocals), Thomas Flanigan (lead guitar, vocals), Kurt Robinson (organ), John Folcik (bass)

Although Going All the Way gave the band a higher profile in their home state, it met with no success elsewhere, and the record company did not issue any follow-up. Folcik and Robinson soon left the band. Lead singer Mike Bouyea was drafted the following year and sent to Vietnam, and that was the end of the group. Bouyea later released several singles, “The Fury”, “Lover Of The Night”, “I Can Wait”, and later became a radio personality at 1050 CHUM, Toronto.
