The Continentals Perform “Thunderbird” in 1961 With Pretty Sweet Dance Moves

Have you ever heard of The Continentals? If not, you’re in for a treat!

When it comes to music from the Good Old Days, we like to think of ourselves as being “in the know.” Yet somehow, The Continentals seem to be one of those forgotten groups that you don’t really remember until you hear them again! And, boy are we glad stumbled upon this clip again!

In 1961, this group appeared on The Original Amateur Hour, hosted by Ted Mack, one of the many radio programs that made the jump to television. And, the group put on quite the performance! See them play their song “Thunderbird” in the video below and keep an eye on the lead singer: talk about some groovy dance moves!
