Robert Vaughn & The Shadows
Back in the mid 90's I bought a compilation album which featured a number of groups and musicians that I was familiar with. There were other, unfamiliar artists as well. Among them was  a band from  San Diego called Robert Vaughn and the Shadows. I could not believe that such a talented group had not become internationally famous! They released their  first album on Island Records, gained a slot on "American Bandstand" and  had a single called "Justice" that started to get a lot of airplay. But, seemingly not enough. In the big push to get a certain band called U2 established in the USA, Island dropped a number of great groups...including these guys...
Years later I had the opportunity to get to know Randy Layton of Alternative Records (who put out the original compilation) and he has been kind enough to provide me with a lot more of the band's material, including the album "Songs From The Riverhouse" that he produced to help the band gain another major record company deal.
But it all just sort of went nowhere.....a follow up album, an  unreleased record, a song used in a major motion picture.....and that  was it.
Or was it? Where are they now?
Thanks to Randy Layton, who has made a lot of the video featured on this site available for us to view on YouTube. There are some classic clips and videos still out there....anyone want to share?
The Latest Updates
I am gathering together some more biographical material on the band members and hope to put it up soon. If you have anything (words, pictures, memories) that you would like to share, please email me: wayne@smashthatcomputer.com
With the lockdown in force, this is the time for you guys to send me stuff.

The new release from Leo and Anthony (ex-Shadows) called "REFLEX" is out!
CDBaby just closed it's online store (the link to "Reflex" was below) so if you want a physical copy of the CD please contact me and I will put you in touch with the guys.

These guys continue to rock hard out! There's a special guest vocalist on one of the tracks...Robert Vaughn called in to the studio one day when they were recording and the guys convinced him to sing on the track they were working on.

MIKE HARRIS (Producer)
