Event Description

Dance to 50's & 60's Rock N Roll by The Do's and The Don'ts  

The Escorts/The Do's and Don'ts were one of the first professional bands in Iowa to play Rock N Roll music. They were also the first one in the state to feature a female keyboard player in what was mostly an all-male music business.   


The Escorts' first official date was playing in the store window for the grand opening of the Montgomery Wards' store in Washington, Iowa. They didn't stay long in the Wards' window, as The Escorts quickly became Eastern Iowa's #1 touring and recording rock music attraction.  


In 1966 they were signed to New York's Red Bird Records label and quickly came out with I Wonder If She Loves Me, written by Roger Booth. It was listed in the Spotlight Singles of the July 2, 1966, issue of Billboard Magazine. It was with the release of this record that The Escorts changed their name to The Do's & The Don'ts at the urging of the record label.
