The Blue Echoes

60's Cover Band

The Blue Echoes one of the longest surviving Australian groups, having stayed together in various line-ups for twenty years spanning early 1964 to late 1983.  The original line up consisted of : Ray Eames, Ray Quon, Ron Chapman, Phil Golotta & Chris Stoddard

Even though they were considered as one of Australia’s longest surviving groups, they never got going until the 70's and really only gained a reputation as a Victorian pub group. Phil Golotto who was the lead vocalist was also a successful songwriter, he wrote Jamie Redfern’s ‘Hitch A Ride On A Smile’, a song which won the 1973 Australian Popular Song Contest.

Their only charting hit was with one song which hit No. 40 in 1973 and stayed on the chart for only one week and that was ’Going To A Party’, it sold particularly well amongst Melbourne hotel-goers (drinkers). The Group also released 2 successful Albums: Dancing In The Street and High-Heeled Rock N Roll.

In 1977 Phil Golotta and Chris Studdard left the remaining members then recruiting ex-soloists Rod Kirkham (Young Talent Time fame) and Robin Jolley into the line up. A New Group was formed calling themselves "The Echoes" (not to be confused with the 60's Instrumental Combo from Sydney calling themselves "The Echoes").
