    Champs/Trashmen/Johnny & The Hurricanes/Dovells Signed Promo Photos (Circa Late 1950s-60s). Covering the genres of Surf, Instrumental Garage Rock and Doo-Wop inspired Pop, these four promotional photographs were signed by each group in blue ball-point, and are a time-capsule of a very unique period of Rock & Roll. Though remembered best for their 1958 hit "Tequila", this photo is of a later lineup, featuring future Soft Rock stars, Seals & Crofts! Also included is a photo of the Surf-Garage Rockers the Trashmen (autographed by all four members), responsible for the often-covered "Surfin' Bird", as well as Johnny & the Hurricanes, and the "Bristol Stomp"-ers themselves, the Dovells. All photos show a small amount of wear, with the Dovells shot has tack holes in the corners, and a small amount of deterioration on the upper right edge, and the Champs glossy has some foxing in that same spot. All measure 8" x 10", and are in Fine condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
