The Outsiders, later called The Soul Trippers, sometime between 1964 and 1966. The Outsiders formed in Tampa, Florida, in 1964, consisting of Hardy Dial on vocals, Buddy Richardson and Ronnie Vaskovsky on guitar, Ronnie Elliot on bass guitar, and Spencer Hinkle on drums. They recorded their debut single, "She's Coming On Stronger," for the Tampa record label, Knight, in late 1965. Dial was replaced on vocals by John DeLise and the band recorded its second single, a cover of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues," in the spring of 1966. The record was a regional success and the band was picked up by the Laurie Records subsidiary Providence, which convinced them to change their name to The Soul Trippers, in order to avoid conflict with several bands that had the same name. In July 1966, they recorded a garage rock version of James Moore's "I'm a King Bee," which sold 20,000 copies. When radio station managers discovered the band was white, they pulled the record from their playlists, and the group departed ways shortly thereafter. Buddy Richardson later formed White Witch and John DeLise went on to play in The Rovin' Flames.
