The Typhoons name was coined in February 1963 as Embassy (UK) found themselves covering increasingly more records by beat bands rather than the more traditional solo singer recordings that had dominated the hit parade in previous years.

Ray Pilgrim and Mike Redway recorded the first Typhoons track for Embassy on 7th February 1963 ... which probably made them the world’s very first recording Beatles tribute band!

The Typhoons only existed as a studio band. The actual singers involved were in fact chosen from Embassy’s existing roster of artists. From 1963 to 1965 there were 62 songs credited on the label as The Typhoons. Ray Pilgrim sang on 29 of them, Mike Redway sang on 20, Ken Barrie on 13, Tony Crane on 19, Joan Baxter on 3, and Paul Rich on 1.
