Sir Douglas Quintet was a rock band active in the mid-1960s and early 1970s. Despite their British-sounding name, they came out of San Antonio, Texas. The Quintet were exponents of good-times music with strong roots in blues and Texas-regional. Doug Sahm, a veteran of the professional music scene, who first sang on the radio at the age of five, formed the Quintet. Starting out in the country music scene, Sahm had been playing in blues clubs since his teenage years. He had gained experience as a band leader. The Quintet is perhaps best known for the 1965 hit single "She's About a Mover". It was once named the number one 'Texas' song by Texas Monthly. In addition to "She's About a Mover," (1965) the band is known for its songs "Mendocino," (1968) "Can You Dig My Vibrations?" (1968) and "Dynamite Woman" (1969). "Mendocino" was released in December 1968, and reached No. 27 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 by early 1969, spending 15 weeks in the chart. It was more successful in Europe selling over three million copies there. In 1972, the group split up when Sahm contracted to produce a solo album. Sahm and Meyers continued to work together throughout the late 1970s, and rejoined with Perez in 1980 for a reunion tour and album. Founder Doug Sahm died of a heart attack in his sleep in a motel room in Taos, New Mexico on November 18, 1999, at the age of 58. In 2005 they were among the new class of musicians chosen for the nominating ballot to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and they could be nominated again on the ballot for 2013 class.
