Pocket player Kirby Johnson anchored The Lincolns folk group which waxed one side in 1963 on the Kapp imprint, before they changed their moniker to The Wellingtons.

Featured on several Disneyland slabs on tunes such as “Savage Sam,” “Folk Heroes, “The Ballad of Davey Crockett,” and “Annette on Campus” – the band reached their widest audience on TV’s Shindig, Hollywood A Go-Go and with the 60’s hit sitcom Gilligan’s Island wherein they cut the initial version of famous theme song – which only appeared in the first season before being replaced by “The Eligibles” - and as the fictional band “The Mosquitos” – performing self-penned compositions. https://bit.ly/2E0woKY

On the 1965 episode “Don’t Bug The Mosquitoes” the band was consequently upstaged by the Honeybees aka Ginger, Mrs. Howell, and my personal favorite, Maryann – whose vocal track on “You Need Us.” https://bit.ly/2pObAB5
