Do you feel like surfing




The Chantays are a surf rock band from the early 1960s, maybe best known for the instrumental "Pipeline". The above performance was from The Lawrence Welk Show On May 18, 1963.

"Pipeline" (published as sheet music in 1962 by Downey Music Publishing) has become a standard surf rock hit. The tune has since been covered by Lawrence Welk himself (on the Dot album Scarlet O'Hara), Al Caiola (United Artists - Album "Greasy Kid Stuff"), The Ventures, Agent Orange, Hank Marvin, Dick Dale with the help of Stevie Ray Vaughan (Grammy Nominated), by thrash metal band Anthrax, Bad Manners, and also by Johnny Thunders. Pipeline has also been featured in many films, television shows and commercials. It also appears on numerous compilations.
