Les Johnston Quartet

circa 1955 - circa 1961
Picture was taken at the Chez Marcel on the Old Island Highway. The Quartet included musicians Jim McKay, Bill Smith, Les Johnston and, of course, Mike Pretty. The Chez was located on the Old Island Highway roughly where the current Dave Wheaton GM dealership is now found. The Chez was a Saturday-night dinner dance club which also had many private functions. Mike played here with Johnston's group until 1961 when they were finally replaced by another band.
