Agnes Banks was formed in 1970/71 and was active till 1979, its name being taken from the suburb, just south of Richmond NSW. The group was a popular rock & roll ‘covers’ band with the ability to keep audiences up on the dance floor and as such, regularly appeared at all of Sydney’s (and surrounds) major music venues, Chequers, Stagedoor, Satchmo's etc. as well as on the 'then' highly vibrant High School and Suburban dance circuit. They also wrote, recorded and played a lot of their own material as part of their act, but only released one single (1975) on the Marvel label (not related to the Comics), now Makeshift Music.
