In 1970, a group was founded in Bergen, N.H. by the name of Guruperide. In 1971, the name of this soft rock group was changed to Mayfly.
Members: Gustaaf Verburg (vocals, bass, guitar and piano), Onno Verburg (vocals, guitar), Ide Min (vocals and electronic instr.), Maarten Min (vocals, drums), Huub Nijhuis (bass, cello), Arie de Geus (piano and violin).
In 1973, Huub was replaced by Walter Tromp, and the group began working with a drummer called Paul Goes. In 1974, the brothers Min left the group; they were replaced by Tjeerd Smit (lyricist), Michel Marion (bass, ex-Machine; replacing Walter), Marinus Groeneveld (sax, flute). After 1975, Mayfly was no more. Paul Goes went on to join Music Garden, and so did Michel Marion. Taken from Alex Gitlin
