During the surf rock movement in Southern California in the early 1960s, a group of four talented high school boys made the scene forming a band The Surfaris. The Surfaris transcended the local scene into international stardom with their hit song "Wipe Out." In 1962, Bob Berryhill (15), Jim Fuller (15), Pat Connolly (15) and Ron Wilson (17) from Glendora, California. The Surfaris song title reached #2 on the US Top 40 for ten weeks in 1963 and became an international hit selling over one million copies and earning a gold record. The energetic drum solo and maniacal introduction made the song one of the best remembered instrumentals of that era. . That drum solo became in the 60's the yardstick for every aspiring young drummer and standing the test of time it still is today.
From the 1960's to today, The Surfaris founding members have continued performing live with various side players filling in as needed. Original members Jim Fuller (guitar), Ron Wilson (drums) and Jim Pash (sax) have since passed away. Original bass player Pat Connelly no longer performs. Bob Berryhill is currently the only original founding member of The Surfaris that officially performs and records as The Surfaris. Bob's current Surfaris line-up, Deven Berryhill (guitar), Gene Berryhill (bass), Bob Berryhill (lead guitar), Joel Berryhill (drums & vocals). continues to tour playing all of their hits.
