Bob and the Beachcombers
Thirty years of rock & roll in the Land of 10,000 Beaches, and still Minnesota didn’t have a beach party band to call it’s own. Bob was determined to make rock & roll history, and so it was that the original Beachcombers band debuted on December 7, 1986, with original members:
Doug “The Snake” Locken on lead guitar
Sally “Surfboard Sal” Westermeyer on drums
Dick “Bird Dog” Erickson on bass
Bob “The Big Kahuna” Burtis on keyboards, sax, and guitar.
In no time at all, they were making waves throughout the Twin Cities and across the upper Midwest.
