Esquires ~ The Esquires

The Esquires were the very first Canadian pop group to be signed by Paul White at Capitol Records Of Canada in the summer of 1963. Their very first single "Atlantis" (Capitol 72126) was issued in Canada on Monday, September 23rd, 1963, just one week after The Beatles' "She Loves You" (Capitol 72125).

The Esquires were heavily influenced by Cliff Richard And The Shadows, and lead guitarist Gary Comeau could cover Hank Marvin's guitar licks note for note, and Atlantis was a truly great cover. The group would develop their own unique sound through 1966. They issued one great album on Capitol and a string of great singles.

The Esquires won the first Gold Leaf Award in late 1964 as the "Top Vocal Instrumental Group" of the year. The award was for the Capitol 45 "So Many Other Boys".
