by request: JON & ROBBIN - ELASTIC EVENT
Jon Abnor put out several records on the Abnak label in 1963 and 1964. Although they got a bit of airplay in Dallas, they didn't chart nationally. Meanwhile, he spent his time running the day-to-day operations of his father's record label. In 1965, after an unsuccessful attempt to go to a national audience by releasing a single on Atco, Jon was paired with female vocalist Javonne Braga as the duo Jon & Robin. (Javonne was called Robin because she was a replacement for the first singer, Robin Beavers, who quit before the duo started recording.) As it turned out, the duet proved to be a better arrangement for Jon's success, with several chart records nationally. Their first hit was "Do It Again A Little Bit Slower" [Abnak 119], which reached the national top-20 in late spring, 1967. This and several followup singles were billed as "Jon & Robin & the In Crowd."
