The Lemon Twisters kept playing together; in 1968, they actually had an appointment at Columbia Records to talk about a possible recording contract, said Ray Love, a saxophonist who had joined the group by then.

But their driver made a wrong turn on the streets of New York and they missed the meeting.

"That was the end of that," Moore said.

In 1969, Moore moved to Miami looking for more work. He performed with several groups there, such as Notorious Miami, which enjoyed a minor hit in 1976 with a song titled "Kill That Roach."

EXTRACT -- Register quickly realized these dances were a potential gold mine. He spotted a black group called the Lemon Twisters at the Forest Inn, which was a Westside teen club from 8 p.m. until midnight, when it became an all-adult "bottle club"until 5 a.m. The Lemon Twisters were fronted by nineteen-year-old "Little Robert" Moore, a flamboyant singer in the James Brown/Jackie Wilson mode
