This website is devoted primarily to romanticizing a blink in recorded human history,
in the latter half of 20th century AD, also known as "the late '60s/early 70's".
It was during this time that a few members of the Boy Scouts of America Troop 763, in
Huntington, West Virginia
, splintered off and embarked on a one-way journey into the relatively nubile worlds of Rock & Roll, Soul, and Rhythm & Blues.
These individuals joined with other self-styled musicians and vocalists from the community to form "The Blue Beats".
