Medallions Swing On
We still have an eleven dozen photos of the Swingin' Medallions from the 60s to the 2000s that were not used in the book many of which will find a home at this posting. Check back as we will add them from time to time. Back in the 80s, we had the honor of organizing concerts and parties that featured the Original Swingin' Medallions ( the Eight that recorded Double Shot ) plus others that made great contributions to the band's party legacy prior to and following Double Shot.
The photos above were taken at a party at the Chattahoochee Plantation in Marietta, Georgia in 1984.
