Hula Hawaiians

There's not a lot of information that I could find about the Hula Hawaiians, other than that they were a Swiss and German band who recorded from the 40s through the 60s. In fact, here is a video that is supposed to be the Hula Hawaiians still performing not that long ago. Listen and love The Chimpanzee Rock:

If you think you'd dig hearing a Hawaiian themed song sung in German, try Zucker Lilly (from 78rpm):

And a small four song download I made just for YOU (no, not you, but YOU):

Doesn't their neckwear look less like leis than giant pipecleaners?

The strangest thing was the sight of the two guitar players at the "Kaiserhof" subway station in Berlin. "I come out of this bunker of death, all that drama, and someone's playing music," recalls Rochus Misch. "They played Hawaiian music!" It was May 2, 1945, at six o'clock in the morning.
