VINYL CLASSICS - THE ROMANCERS - DO THE SLAUSON











The Slauson was a popular dance on the Eastside in the early 1960's. The r&b group, The Olympics and Round Robin had their own Slauson dance records.

Due to legal issues with Magic Circle Records, Max Uballez, leader of The Romancers wrote an instrumental song, "Slauson Shuffle". From their a five hour recording session yield the twelve tracks released by Del-Fi Records in 1962. The album was entitled "Do The Slauson" (Del-Fi 1245).

The band members were:

Max Uballez (rhythm guitar)
Andy Tesso (lead guitar)
                                                              Chris Pascual (bass)
                                                        Manuel Mosqueda (drums)
                                                            Armando Mora (tenor sax)

The instrumental tracks feature a solid "chunka chunka' rhythm guitar and an innovative lead on the Fender Telecaster. Add to that an excellent tenor sax and you have a strong & steady sound. "Slauson Shuffle" and "All Aboard" were released as a single (Del-Fi 4225). "Huggies Bunnies" "Patricia" and "Mint Julep" are cover versions.
