    Biography :

    The band formed in 1960 by John Harris classmates, Jessie Alphanso and Larry McKenion. They frequently played at the Oaks in York and, on their own turf, played regularly at the Superette Market/Dance Hall. The Sentries never landed a record deal, but recorded a five song demo at Gross Studios, Mechanicsburg, in 1962.

    They were often mistakenly identified as the Thundering Centuries, a misnomer which lead to at least  one spin-off, or copy-cat group, the Lightning Decades.
