Flyer for a concert for The Shangri-Las and The Tempests at Mason's Hall. The "Teen Seen," which was located on the West End Buffalo Avenue Bridge in Tampa, Florida, on March 26, 1966. The flyer features a photograph of The Shangri-Las, a New York-based girl group who were scheduled to headline the event. Admission was $1.50.

The Tempests were formed in St. Petersburg, Florida in 1963, when the members were just 12 and 13 years old. The original members included Doug Palmer (rhythm guitar), Bobby Allen (drums), Bill Hickman (bass guitar), Tommy Angarano (vocals), and Charlie Bailey (lead guitar). Hickman was later replaced with Buddy Peterson and Palmer was replaced with Mike Hammer, enhancing the group's ability to play songs with harmony. Due to the popularity of The Beatles, harmony-driven bands dominated the radio. The new additions proved a success, as the group won the Battle of the Bands at the Electric Zoo and recorded their first record, "I Want You Only," with "I Want You to Know" as the B-side. Allen was later replaced with Brad Myers on drums, and Bailey with Roy Delese on keyboard. The band opened for many national groups, such as The Dave Clark Five, The Shangri-Las, Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, Tommy James and the Shondells, Blues Magoos, The Doors, The McCoys, the Mindbenders, The Allman Brothers Band, and Three Dog Night.
