showed up. Teenagers from Mid County, Beaumont and even Orange begin to show
up and even became members. Local rock 'n roll bands made their first steps into
show business by appearing at the Beehive. Johnny Roy and the 'Dialtones', Dwight
Perrio and the 'Rockin' Knights', Johnny Piggot, Dale Gothia and Jivin Gene Bourgeois,
just to name a few.
and the "Dialtones"
I was just wondering if anyone had any pictures of the bands that played at the Beehive.
Jack Yager and I, Herman Myers, had a band and we played a lot of the weekends.
I don't remember who else was in the band except Ted Linscomb who played saxophone.
We had around 7 people in the band including a girl singer. We were called the Orcats.
If anyone has any pictures or information about who was in the band please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I went to the Port Arthur Library and did some research on the Bee Hive
and the locations it occupied during its life.
