The rock band Sutton Ho, which formed at Marist in the early 1970s, got back together this past year — but only for dinner. They reunited in June at Keens Steakhouse in New York City.
Sutton Ho was comprised of five Marist students: John Kaefer ’73 (drums), George Dawson ’71 (keyboards), Tom Meehan ’74 (bass), Kevin Dwyer ’72 (guitar), and Bob Coffin ’73 (vocals).
After winning a band contest on campus, they played in clubs regionally in 1971 and 1972. They landed a much sought-after gig as the house band at the Mad Hatter in the Hamptons during summer 1972 before circumstances caused the band to fold in the fall of ’72.
