In 1963, businessman Walter Clarke, who owned the Waltah Clarke’s Hawaiian shops in Hawaii, and from Beverly Hills to Florida, decided to throw a party for the Waikiki Beachboys that had befriended him in 1938 when he arrived from college in Palm Springs, California.
He invited all of his old beachboy friends:
Harry Robello, Turkey Love, Ox Keaulani, Splash Lyons, Chick Daniels, Steamboat Mokuahi, Panama Dave Baptiste, Fat Kala, Jimmy Hakuole, and Duke Kahanamoku.
The live recording made at the Outrigger Canoe Club was released on Duke Kahanamoku Records in 1963.
These Hawaiian music legends are gone now, but not forgotten.
Today, 55 years later, we’ll share this memorable music with you.
