Gene Barge

Description   [from Freebase]

Gene Barge (born August 9, 1926) is an accomplished tenor and alto saxophonist and composer in several bands.. He is a founding member of the 1960s band The Church Street Five, was born in Norfolk, Virginia (USA). In 1961, The Dovells charted a #2 song called The Bristol Stomp which refers to Bristol, PA (USA) and includes the line "We ponied and twisted and we rocked with Daddy G". Since Gene Barge had co-written "A Night With Daddy 'G' - Part 1" and "A Night With Daddy 'G' - Part 2" (Legrand LEG 1004), many applied the pseudonym 'Daddy G' to him. It is not known whether the 'Daddy G' of that 1961 song lyric was intended to be Gene Barge or Bishop 'Daddy' Grace, a Norfolk, Virginia evangelist, whose church address was the inspiration for the naming of the group. The lyrics to Gary U.S.
