The Paper Fortress

Paper Fortress

Evan Zang (drums and vocals), Sam Chirico (lead vocal and rhythm guitar), Jim Whittle and Joey Campo.

The Paper Fortress Band (formerly known as the Royal Teens not the group that recorded Short Shorts) and this pop group was extremely well received in Southern California. They opened for acts like The Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Merry-Go-Round, The Standells, and The Electric Flag. However, studio musicians were used for these two songs.
Tandyn and Eddie recorded various vocals on both songs as guidelines. However, the final lead vocals for Butterfly High and Sleepy Hollow People were performed by Paper Fortress lead singer Sam Chirico. The second part harmonies were performed by PF drummer Evan Zang. The remaining harmonies were done by Jim Whittle and Joey Campo.

Sam has enjoyed a very successful career as a Las Vegas entertainer, and multi-instrument and vocalist Evan has written and recorded numerous TV and radio jingles.
