The Cascades were a pop quintet from San Diego, California that became famous during the early 1960s. The original hitmaking lineup consisted of Eddie Snyder (guitar), Dave Stevens (bass), David Szabo (keyboards), Dave Wilson (drums), and lead singer John Gummoe. They are best known for the gentle and sorrowful Gummoe-penned ballad, "Rhythm Of The Rain" (1963), in which the sounds of rain and thunder can be heard at both the beginning and end of this oldies classic.
