Young Senators, indeed! The Young Senators were not the only band in town, of course. The The Roots and Emergence of Go-Go 19 ranks of soul- and Motown-inspired bands included the Matadors, Chilly Bopper and the Third World, the Dynamic Superiors, the El Corals, and Aggression. C. came to town, they would play at the Lincoln Theater or the Howard Theater, because in those days the U Street Corridor was happening. In addition to opening for national acts, the local bands would play at smaller clubs around the city.

Andre "Whiteboy" Johnson recalls Rare Essence's beginnings in the mid-'70s, and his comments encapsulate the history of many go-go bands: When Rare Essence first started, the music wasn't even called go-go. I don't know what you call it, but it wasn't even go-go music Rare Essence came together when we were in elementary school. A couple of us were in the same class, and we knew that each of us played instruments. Everybody played baseball or football, but between seasons we were looking for something to do, so we got together to try and make some noise.

Former go-go promoter Darryll Brooks observed: Clubs weren't letting black folks in. We would go to Northeast Gardens up off of North Capitol Street, and you could get a cabaret there. The place held about 400 people. Sororities and social groups would hire bands, and that was a way of employment. The Chuck Browns, the Scacy & the Sound Servers, Black Heat, and the Young Senators—those were the bands that they were using. And whichever band could keep people on the dance floor the longest was the hottest band.
