In 1961, Paul Johnson and Eddie Bertrand (both just teenagers at the time) formed The Bel-Airs. They are best known for their instrumental hit “Mr. Moto”. After they broke up, Eddie went on to form Eddie and The Showmen. Both bands are considered highly influential in the “instrumental surf rock” genre. On Feb. 5, 2011, a whose who of surf music got together at Don The Beachcombers in Huntington Beach, CA to help raise money for Eddies medical bills. It was a great day (and night) of surf music, with the highlight (my opinion) being a Bel-Airs “reunion”.
