Poco

Poco was formed in 1968 by ex-Buffalo Springfield members Jim Messina and Richie Furay.

Initially, the band were so conscious of hitting the East Coast – suspecting that they lacked a following there – that they planned an intensive campaign which resulted in them causing near hysteria at the Shea Stadium Peace Festival in 1970.

The group was somewhat overshadowed by other ex-Buffalo members Neil Young and Stephen Stills, and a series of line-up changes eventually saw Messina depart in 1970 and Furay leave in 1972.
