The Hula Girls are an Orange County-based Rockabilly band with a "Hawaiian" twist.
Like a '32 Ford tearing through the International Marketplace in 1960 Honolulu, The Hula Girls have been busy preaching their self-described 'hulabilly' sounds all over Southern California. It's the upright bass thumping of Mr. Christian Kessler, the dizzying drumming of Mr. Doug Sanbourn, the Gretsch guitar twangin' of Mr. Spike Marble, and the smooth and haunting steel guitar!
They've played along side such modern rockabilly and modern surf legends as Dick Dale, Big Sandy, Dave Alvin, Thee Swank Bastards, Ape, The Tikiyaki Orchestra, Los Straitjackets, Wayne the Train Hancock, and Hot Rod Lincoln. It's up-tempo hapa haole, tiki, and surf themed music, all filtered through the late 1950's and early 60's rockabilly and rock n' roll sound.
There will be a DJ to spin tunes to keep the crowd movin' and grovin' into the late-night Happy Hour at Don the Beachcomber.
