Was going thru papers and found Poppa's name. Checked it out on Google.com and sadly found out about Julius's passing. I am in Montreal , Canada and am proud to say Poppa and I spent time here in Canada where I booked him several times. I thought he was working out of Boston in the mid 1960's. I took Poppa into the studio with One of the bands I managed - Dennis Lepage and the Persuaders (AKA "LIME") and we did 2 songs including Tennesse Waltz. I enjoyed his company while he was here in Montreal. My sincerest condolences to all his family , friends and fans. Don Wayne Patterson

Where do I start, I'm Gayle Anderson from Worcester,Ma. I just found out, i was looking you to see where you were and read of your passing, i know you are now at peace. The last time we talked was about 4 yrs ago. I do hope you got the picture i sent of the old group from the KITTY CAT Club.I always thought about you and the band.Your group was one of the first live bands that i saw that when i fellin love with live music. You were one of the best,and had a big heart also. i will think you and never forget you. Oh if you see Miss Mary make sure she meets Bobby, she just might have a plate of those good old pig feet. One last thing "Thank You For Your Love" my favorite song.
Miss You,
Gayle Anderson
