Johnny and the Hurricanes

Johnny and the Hurricanes

Yet another late fifties instrumental hit. According to my sources the group made hits by turning old standards and even a military song into rock and roll. The instrumentals were lead by Johnny Paris's Sax.

I don't care where he got his ideas or inspiration, I liked it. I just wish the boarding school I attended had used his version of reveille.

Click on the videos below and enjoy a really neat version of "Red River Valley". Johnny turned it into "Red River Rock" and does it rock.  They might not be in the Hall of Fame but they could always tell everyone the Beatles was their opening act. 

Fun music ! Enjoy !!
