The Champs

The Champs

Here's what must have been the first Latino Rock influence. This group was an Los Angeles based group of studio musicians working for none other than Gene Autry. I guess we can assume the name of the group might have something to do with Mr. Autry's famous horse.

The Champs

          Mucho Info     Video Tequila   

             La Cucaracha     Limbo Rock

Tequila went to #1 so I have to think the teenagers of 1958 were open to new sounds. Once again the year of the instrumental is in play.
