From Roscoe Helco

CATFISH – I saw this band play at the Fillmore and later at Keystone Korners, where Janis Joplin got up out of the audience and jammed with them. Clockwise from the left: Jimmy Optner (drums), Bob "Catfish" Hodge (lead vocals), Mark Manko (guitar), Harry Phillips (organ) and R Cooke (bass). They recorded two album for the Epic label. Harry was from my old neighborhood. He and Ron Cooke would eventually join Mitch Ryder in the band Detroit. Bob Hodge had a successful solo career and recorded the hit album, "The Boogieman Is Gonna Get You," for Westbound Records. Catfish could be discribed as Detroit's Canned Heat
