ALL ABOUT THE FILLET OF SOUL BAND
Back in the late 60’s there was a group of friends singing and playing instruments on street corners and in basements. But where it all really started coming together was at Hackensack High School in an Acapella Choir Group. These friends formed the Soul Survivors. The band consisted of Ike McKinnon, Douglas Pintka, Steve (Moon) Long, Gregory Barnes, John Mafaro, Nick Knuauer, Greg Kershian, and Charlie Vassili. They entered a Battle of the Bands contest and won! Subsequently, however, they had to change their name because another band named The Soul Survivors released a hit record. Steve (Moon) and Doug were discussing a new name while getting something to eat. They wanted the name to symbolize the best of soul music, hence the name the Fillet of Soul.
