Teddy and the pandas searchin for the good times 1966

Teddy and the Pandas were an American garage rock band formed in 1963 as the Sensations in Beverly, Massachusetts. The band originally consisted of Al Lawrence on vocals, Billy Corelle on bass guitar, Ralph Cooper on drums, Joe Daly on lead guitar, and Dick Winters on saxophone. Shortly thereafter, the group added Dick Guerrette on keyboards, and guitarist William "Teddy" Dewart, while Winters moved on. In 1964, Jerry Labrecque replaced drummer Ralph Cooper, finalizing the line-up that was to become known as Teddy and The Pandas.


Teddy and the Pandas released five singles from 1966 to 1968, in addition to one album. During their heyday, Teddy and the Pandas toured with The Beach Boys, The Dave Clark Five, The Lovin' Spoonful, and Paul Revere & The Raiders, and were also part of Gene Pitney's 1966 tour. In addition to their appearance on Where the Action Is, the band performed on Cleveland's Upbeat TV television program.

Excluding a handful of appearances on 1980s compilation albums, the music of Teddy and the Pandas has generally been unavailable since the group's disbanding in 1969.
