The Champs


Jim Seals and Dash Crofts stayed with the group until it disbanded in 1964. They formed the Dawnbreakers, and re-emerged in the late 1960s/early 1970s as a popular acoustic duo. The Champs had 7 more singles on the charts through 1962, none of which came close to matching the success of "Tequila". See more trivia »
