Dave Dalton played a seminal role in the evolution of rock and roll when he formed a band, Northern Lights, with guitarist "Wee Willie" Williams, later a founding member of Gene Vincent's band, the Blue Caps, Roberta "Robbie" Merrill and Donna Dicker. The group, which originated at Lee Academy in Lee, Maine, enjoyed a regional success in the American northeast and southern Canada and hosted their own radio and television shows on Bangor, Maine station, WABI.

Following the break-up of Northern Lights, Dalton accompanied the newly-wed couple of Williams and Merrill to Portsmouth, Virginia, where they continued to perform at radio station, WCMS as the Virginians.
