The Skopes a Garage band that made HISTORY

John Centinaro from The Tampa Florida area managed and produced a mid1960's garage band called The Skopes and I helped him get their record "She's Got Bad Breath"/ "Tears in Your Eyes" on the USA record label in Chicago(the same label that Chicago's Buckinghams appeared on with "Kind of a Drag" written by The Mob's Jimmy "Soul" Holvay that was a Billboard #1 hit)...John Centinaro is a talented man in the music business..he was a booking agent, a songwriter, a record producer and a genius of a promoter..James Marvell and Buddy Good from that garage band-"The Skopes" went on to become part of a #2 Billboard hit in the group "Mercy" who recorded "Love (Can Make You Happy)" written by Jack Sigler Jr....later on John Centinaro,James Marvell and Buddy Good arrived in Nashville to star in the country duo known as "The Country Cavaleers"...James Marvell from The Skopes has an excellent You-Tube video online which is a salute to all garage bands worldwide.....
