The Palm Beach Band Boys was a studio recording group ostensibly assembled by RCA Victor to capitalize on the success of The New Vaudeville Band’s hit single, “Winchester Cathedral”. They performed in a style for which the New Vaudeville Band’s promoters coined the term, newstalgia, a kind of faux 1920s/1930s sound, featuring nasal vocals, banjo, brass, electric guitar, rock drums, and bassoon. (Mort Goode uses the term in his liner notes for their first album.) According to a December 1966 TIME article, the vocalist is actually “an RCA executive who croons while holding his nose.”
