    Biography :

    Van Loan, Ray and Kornegay had been together in the Du Droppers.
    In 1959, Joe Van Loan, Willie Ray, Orville Brooks, and Dave Bowers formed the Buccaneers, who toured extensively, but made no recordings. When Dave left, he was replaced by Bob Kornegay .


    They changed their name to the Valiants and recorded "Let Me Go Lover"/"Let Me Ride", released in September 1959, on the Joy label.
    Orville Brooks went back a long way, having been with the Jubalaires in the early 1940s. Then it was on to the Golden Gate Quartet and the re-formed Larks (on Lloyds).
