In 1957, brothers Alan & Clayton Naluai were attending Glendale Junior College in Glendale, California.
They were befriended by two other Hawaiians: percussionist Bernie Ching, and Pat Sylva, a multi-instrumentalist who could hold his own on the piano, vibes, ukulele, or trombone.
Both Pat & Bernie sang as well.
The quartet began performing in backyard luau in southern California, but over the next couple of decades, they made numerous recordings, and played top engagements both home in Hawaii and on the mainland!
Their trademark 4-part harmony remains unique and memorable.
Today, we’ll celebrate the recorded legacy of the Surfers.
