Auckland folk group The Convairs formed in 1961. The trio of Johnny Bond (vocals, banjo), Michael Dolan (vocals, guitar) and Phil Seth (vocals, guitar) spent 18 months practising together before entering and winning the radio talent show Have A Shot on 1ZB.

As part of their prize they recorded their first single ‘Lemon Tree’ for the Mascot label.
