Johnny and the Hurricanes - Voice Your Choice

Johnny And The Hurricanes were one of the most distinctive sounding instrumental groups of the 1950s and '60s. Originally known as The Orbits from Toledo, Ohio, they went on to national and international acclaim with their Top Ten smash Red River Rock. They also had hits with Reveille Rock, Rockin' Goose, Crossfire, and others.

Sadly,  Lionel "Butch" Mattice, the bass player in the group, passed away in November 2006.

Treasure Island Oldies is pleased to present Johnny and the Hurricanes on Voice Your Choice. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either Crossfire or Red River Rock. I'll play the winner on next week's show.
