Freddie Garrity started out in a skiffle group The Red Sox, which he formed in 1957 with his brother Derek Garrity. Later he was in The John Norman Four, then The Kingfishers. In late 1959 The Kingfishers changed their name to The Dreamers Rhythm Group that in October 1961 became Freddie and the Dreamers.

As for Derek Quinn he joined a group called The Kingfishers with a line-up of Freddie Garrity on lead vocals (b. Frederick Garrity Jnr, Saturday, November 14, 1936, 123 Crescent Road, Crumpsell, Manchester, Lancashire, UK d. Friday, May 19, 2006, Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor, Gwynedd, North Wales), Derek Quinn on bass (b. May 24, 1942, Manchester, Lancashire, UK), Ernie Molloy on lead guitar (b.

Bernard Dwyer, Wednesday, September 11, 1940, Manchester, Lancashire, UK d. Wednesday, December 4, 2002, Cheadle, Cheshire, UK).

When Garrity had joined this group he had sold his amplifier to Crewsdon. When Molloy left to be a milkman, Quinn became the lead guitarist, harmonica player and the band was joined by bassist Pete Birrell (b. Peter Birrell, Friday, May 9, 1941, Manchester, Lancashire, UK).
