The Baroques were a rock group formed in 1966 who signed a contract with Chess Records. In 1967 both the album “Iowa” and single “Mary Jane”
were released and banned in the same week when radio stations thought a song called “Mary Jane” was a pro-drug song about marijuana. This track now has cult fame status. The singer of the group was Jay Berkenhagen, who was also a song writer. The group was Dean Nimmer, Rick Bieniewski, Jay Berkenhagen and Jacques Hutchinson.
