- "Independence Hall" was a 1960s Houston-based rock band. The band had enjoyed tremendous popularity in the Texas Gulf Coast area as "The Rogues." As The Rogues. the group was the first in the Houston area to play "British Invasion" inspired music. They were so associated with the genre that they were billed as "The American Band with the British Sound." As "Independence Hall," the group's repetoire began evolving into a harder, blues-inspired playlist. "Mary Sunshine" reflects a hybrid moment as the band melded the blues sound of a Hammond B-3 with high harmonies. The Rogues/ Independence Hall apperaed with some of major rock and blues acts of the 1960s including Lightnin' Hopkins, The Righteous Brothers, B.J. Thomas, Roy Head and others. The band's last gig was sharing house band duties at Houston's infamous after-hours club, The Cellar. The group released three singles between 1965 and 1967. A fourth record was never released. more>> <<less
