I was the bass player for the Hustlers based out of Whittier CA.
Our main gig was a Saturday nite "Sock Hop"at Skat-O-Rama in Downey CA. For 2 bucks you got stompin music all night (like the Rendevous Ballroom in Newport Beach Dick Dale style) an a one hour show. Arlen Sanders, a Dj on KKRLA would anouce the guest performers like: Dick and Dee Dee,
April and Nino Tempo (brother and sister act, Nino Tempo was Bobby Darin's sax player), the Coasters (discovered by Johhny Otis as the Robins/"Smoky Joe's Cafe" that moved to the east coast----to become the Coasters, The Kingsmen (song of the year Louie Louie) written by Richard Berry ("Have Love Will Travel") in calypso style --"A fine little girl awaits for me, she's just a trip across the sea etc, as you can tell I can go on for all verses.....discovered by Johnny Otis and paired with Etta James for her first record "Dance with me Henry/The Wallflower". Johnny also wrote with Every Beat for My Heart in a bout 53 or 53 which was covered by Gladys Knight to be her first hit. Beach Boys, Rip cords etc.etc.

We recorded on Downey records, and paid Barry White for his first paying gig... $20 per session to arrange this simple tunes.
