This band, The Peppermint Trolley Company, are actually the ones that did The Brady Bunch theme song. Unfortunately, aside from some commercial work here and there, the TV theme was only hit and they disbanded sometime in the 70s.
Although this song "Trust" is lyrically super soppy and they look quite awkward in their ill-fitting Sgt. Pepper rip-off outfits, I highly recommend their soft psychedelic album "Beautiful Sun" to lovers of 60s sounds. It is very varied, has a lot of soft mid 60s pop band sounds with sweet Penny Lane-ish psychedelic orchestration here and there. You can find the album for a low bargain basement price at emusic.com.
