In the summer of 1962, 17-year-old Gabe Lapano moved to San Diego with his family. He enrolled at Helix High School, eventually bringing his Wurlitzer electric piano to a band that would become known as Sandi & the Accents. He later played in the Cascades, who achieved world fame with their hit "Rhythm of the Rain."
Essentially a one-shot Lapano project, the 7 Sons released one single in 1967 on VTI Records, "On the Run," produced by Al DiMartino (producer for both the Cascades and the Accents) and John Gummoe (original Cascades singer).
