Johnny & The Hurricanes

One of the most distinctive instrumental groups of the '50s and '60s, Johnny & the Hurricanes produced the Top Ten hit "Red River Rock" and scored several other instrumental hits that mixed rock & roll with traditional melodies. Originally known as the Orbits, the group formed in Toledo, OH, in 1958 and was led by saxophonist Johnny Paris; other members included organist Paul Tesluk, guitarist Dave Yorko, bassist Lionel "Butch" Mattice, and drummer Tony Kaye. After a stint recording with rockabilly singer Mack Vickery, the group traveled to Detroit, hoping to become a backing band for up-and-coming singers. However, a pair of music promoters, Harry Balk and Irving Michanik, signed them as a group on their own, and they recorded their first single, "Crossfire," for the Twirl label in 1959. "Crossfire" went to number 23 and the group moved to the Warwick imprint for "Red River Rock," a rock & roll instrumental of the standard "Red River Valley" that peaked at number five. The Hurricanes responded to their success with more of the same, delivering "Reveille Rock," "Rockin' Goose," "Revival," and "Beatnik Fly" over the next year, touring extensively all the while. Eventually the pace -- and lack of further hit singles -- caught up with the group, and Johnny & the Hurricanes disbanded in 1965. Paris moved to Hamburg, started his own label, Atila, and in 1970 formed a new Hurricanes lineup that toured until November 2005, two weeks before Paris took ill and was hospitalized. He died on May 1, 2006, due to pneumonia and septic blood after a splenectomy. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Hi, I'm Carl Conatser, and I want to say that the Johnny and the Hurricanes music was the best music of those years,there still great.

This was a truly talented group and I always have fond memories of high school whenever I hear a tune by them. I read some years ago that they toured Britain in 1963 and opened for an up and coming band called The Beatles. Who knows whatever happened to those guys?!!
My cousin is Bobby Ignatowski. He was in this band. He died of cancer years ago. I still love to listen to this stuff! I live in the Toledo area (Maumee) and wish I would have been older when they were popular. I have all kinds of records at home that were passed down to me.
My dad got to play keyboards for these guys at a show once!
