Members of MFQ had a lot of connections with The Monkees, and here they are pictured in 1990. Chip Douglas, of course, produced both the Headquarters and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. albums, along with the "Daydream Believer" single. Henry Diltz, noted rock photographer, was constantly around the group in the '60s and even contributed to some Monkees recordings (that's Henry on the banjo on "D.W. Washburn"). And Jerry Yester played bass on "Shades of Gray" and "I Can't Get Her Off My Mind" on Headquarters. In 1965, they added rock drummer Eddie Hoh and were renamed the Modern Folk Quintet, but preferred to be known as the MFQ. Hoh later became a session drummer for The Monkees throughout 1967 and 1969, adding his work to albums like Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. and singles "Daydream Believer" and "Goin' Down."
Pictured left to right are The Yester brothers (Jim & Jerry), Henry Diltz, Cyrus Faryar and Chip Douglas. This picture was taken on July 19, 1990 during the Chicago Monkees Convention. MFQ played a set at the convention that mirrored their concerts in Japan earlier in 1990. They were joined at the end of their show by Davy, who made a few remarks.
MFQ also performed "Riu Chiu" a capella-style on the first day of the Chicago convention, and Chip played a solo show on the second day. (Thanks to Chie Hama for updated information found in this post!)
