Rod Pyke's Hemsby #39 Photo Album








"Thanks so very much to the fans. Janis will surely be missed by the Rock-A-Billy world, she was a true professional both on and off stage. She was loved by everyone that she ever came in contact with. She had the most beautiful voice of any entertainer. I'm sure the good Lord has her voice ringing out through the heavens. She just had a gift of God that was just out of this world. She would walk out on stage and the place would just go in an uproar. Janis just had that gift to pull people and put them in the palm of her hand. She had an impact on me that was unreal. I just know she's gone to a better place and that I'll see her one day."
B. Wayne Whitt,
Janis' husband.

Plaque on the wall of The TWIN BARS
where, in 1952 Bill Haley and The Saddlemen (later to become The Comets) played. That is where they first played "Rock This Joint", the song that many believe was the beginning of "rock & Roll". On July 14th 2007, and 55 years later, The Coments rocked South Jersey again. Paul Kain, city administrator, and Gina Dumphy, Director of Community Development for Gloucester City, did such a great jobĘmaking everything work very smoothly for Marshall, Joey, Dick and the boys.
