JIM CARSTEN BUDDY CARSON RICKY WRIGHT DENNY TURNER JIM RYAN
Denny, Buddy and Ricky were the first Outcasts. The Outcasts first uniforms were white shirts with their logo hand painted on the back. Taking on Sally Senter as Manager in 1964, Sally and the guys auditioned singers, guitarists and bassists and chose Jim C. and Jim R. hands down. The silver lame' jackets in this 1964 picture were their first professional outfits. Notice Buddy's first keyoard, a Wurlitzer electric reed piano. Denny's guitar here was his first electric, a ' 60 Framus Les Paul "copy". Jim Ryan is sporting his vintage Fender Bass. Jim Carsten played a ' 53 Telecaster at that time.
