None of the names listed as members of the Marketts are correct. They were only the Union Musicians that were hired to record for three hours to play from the arrangements created by the arranger. The Marketts band was formeed in 1958 under the name "The Dee Jayes". They changed their name to The Mar-kets and released one recording in 1961, of a song composed by Michael Z. Gordon entitled, "Surfer's Stomp" and produced by Gordon and producer Joe Saraceno. When it started to hit the charts, the group reocrded several more songs and then began touring across the U.S. The group changed the spelling of their name to The Marketts to avoid a conflict with another group called, The Mar-keys. In 1964, Grodon wrote another song, Out Of Limits, that went to #3 in the nation and sold over a million records. The Marketts continued to record and tour until 1968 after their last song, "Bat Man" hit the charts. Their last appearance was at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Gordon went on to compose and produce songs for movies and television.
