Tomorrow's Love was a psychedelic/mod-pop band formed in Hamilton in 1967 by members of ex-Hamilton/Ngaruawahia R&B band Poor Souls Ron Jenkins and Derek Allan (organ), along with Max Fletcher (bass) and Kevin Tonycliffe (drums). Jenkins, Fletcher and Tonycliffe had not been long in Hamilton from Timaru, with Jenkins having played there with The Kortels, while the other two were in The Boys. Tomorrow's Love played regular gigs at The Old Folks Hall on Alexander St, where they pulled 400-500 per gig.

In 1967 Tomorrow's Love released the song 7 and 7 is, a cover of a song by American band The Love. However, the New Zealand Broadcasting Commission banned the song for it's drug friendly lyrics. The song later appeared on the 1992 Flying Nun compilation Wild Things. The band slit up in 1968, with Tonycliffe, Allan, and Fletcher leaving for Christchurch, while Jenkins remained in Hamilton, opening the nightclub Electric Garden.
