The Champs

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. ~ William Ruhlmann

Tequila is my favorite instrumental of all times. The Champs were champs.

One of the fluid membership of this band (which played the honky tonks in my home town of San Angelo, Texas as the Moonlighters ) was Delaney Bramlett after he relocated to "Los Angeles, briefly landing with the Champs before he was hired to play guitar with the Shindogs. . .". I still love the Champs for both musical and nostalgic reasons.
