    Biography :

    When their last singles ("Everyone Should Know"/"The Creature") failed to take off, the Jayhawks hooked up with promoter C.E. Tebbets. They decided to change their image, because they felt they were being typecast as a "novelty" act. The first thing was to get a new name.


    They changed their name to the Vibes for two singles on the Allied label, but in 1959 they were again credited as the Jayhawks for a further two singles on Eastman Records. Then, in 1960, they changed their name - almost for the last time - to the Vibrations.
