George was born in Utica, N.Y. When he went into the Air Force in 1950, he was part of a musical group that played at the officers' club and the NCO club, where he played string bass, tuba, slide trombone, and drums. Later, he was in the band at Edwards Air Force Base. When he got out, he formed a group called the Kings IV, which headlined at Lake Tahoe. The group was in business for 18 years and opened for Judy Garland, Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, and Danny Thomas. The group played the Sahara when it opened in the mid '60s.
