Herbie and the Heartbeats
From the George Lucas retro masterpiece, American Graffiti was a great ensemble piece that made older people nostalgic and younger people curious about a past era. Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids were already a group that was doing 50’s and early 60’s music, so they were the perfect choice to play the “Sock Hop” in the film. They did two great covers (At the Hop & Louie Louie) and had a taste of mainstream success shortly after. We are not sure what the climate on this site is for a retro cover act, but this is not a bad choice for those who saw the film.




The Bullet Points:
Movie Appeared:
American Graffiti (1973)

Actors:
Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids

Songs you might remember:
At the Hop

Why you should vote for them:

Why you should not vote for them:
Cover acts should only go so far.
