The Scarlets, one of Denmarks most famous and successful artists in the sixties.
The Scarlets were formed in Copenhagen in mid 1963 as a backing-group for Johnny Reimar, who had just left the Clifters. The members were: John Friis (el-b, vo) Kaj Christensen (p, org, vo) Steen Larsen (lead-g) Jan Pedersen (dm).
The Scarlets made their debut at Geels Kro, 20th July 1963. Scarlets quickly became more than just a backing-froup, and had two parallel carreers both on stage and on album: The Scarlets with or without Reimar. Scarlet played rocknroll inspired by Johnny & The Hurricans, which can be heard on their first recording “Bondeorgelet”, which served as the opening-vignette to the radioprogram “Musik for Teenagere”. The B-side “Prinsesse Toben” was a huge hit på “Ti Vi Ka Li” in September 1963. Johnny Reimar & The Scarlets were a popular liveband that toured extensively in Denmark and Sweden. On a lot of the recordings Reimar used Bertrand Bechs Orkester as his backing-group. Scarlets were the first band that played on Hit House, on 1.9.1964, and at the Star Club. In late 1965 The Scarlets and Reimar split, and Johnny Reimar began his solo-career.
