NIGHT PEOPLE, an intimate literary memoir follows the first three, of six years, in the life of a young singer and his Midwestern friends as they strive for success in a coming-of-age music- and romance-filled journey in 1960-era California and Las Vegas.
The most important things in Larry’s life in 1965 Indianapolis are his suddenly endangered marriage to his high school sweetheart and their two little boys, and his scattered-to-the-winds, rock and roll singing group. Improbably reunited with his vocalist friends in distant San Francisco, they barely survive their own clumsy transformation into a working nightclub band. As their fortunes begin to change though, Larry and his band are plunged headfirst into an adventure that will lure them into mob-run nightclubs, Las Vegas showrooms and backrooms, famous Hollywood night spots and recording studios, celebrity managers, and passionate romance—and the sacrifices it demands.
It’s the West Coast in the mid-60s: a historic era of tectonic cultural, political, musical, and sexual upheaval—and the draft. The band scrambles to overcome, or at least endure every obstacle in its path. But in the tumultuous nights the band inhabits, where things and people are too easily found and lost, everything Larry thought he knew about life, love, and himself is being challenged.
