Biography

An instrumental quintet formed in Los Angeles in 1957, the Champs comprised Challenge Records executive Dave Burgess (born Lancaster, CA) (guitar) and session players Buddy Bruce (guitar), Chuck Rio (born Daniel Flores, Rankin, TX) (saxophone), Cliff Hills (bass), and Gene Alden (born Cisco, TX) (drums). This lineup recorded Rio’s “Tequila” as a B-side to Burgess’ “Train to Nowhere.” “Tequila” topped the charts in 1958. The Champs essentially were a one-hit wonder, though they recorded a few more singles in the same Latin dance style and kept going until the mid-’60s. The group’s lineup was fluid, and later members included Glen Campbell as well as Jimmy Seals and Dash Crofts, who formed the successful ’70s duo Seals and Crofts.

    Tá gente, como vai ficar? Sou contra tag em hangul porque eles são brasileiros, nada haver usar coreano no nome deles. Só CHAMPS é uma banda que já existe também, não?

    Nice seeing so much agreement to this issue, I hope you guys also use the title correcting-function last.fm offers. Otherwise they won't change the redirect.

    Tequila - это композиция, которая уже стала классикой. Ее помнили, помнят и будут помнить.
