The Astronauts had a hit with “Baja” off the 1963 album Surfin With The Astronauts, and soon after released three more full-length albums. The band was also very successful in Japan, where they out-sold The Beach Boys and scored a chart-topping hit with the song “Movin.”
Flash Cadillac — formerly known as Flash Cadillac & the Continental Kids — formed at CU Boulder in the late ‘60s. The rock ‘n’ roll group was featured on “American Bandstand” and “Happy Days,” as well as in “Apocalypse Now” and “American Graffiti.”
The induction ceremony will also honor Denver rock band Sugarloaf and Denver AM station KIMN radio. They’ll join Barry Fey, Harry Tuft, John Denver and Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the relatively new Hall of Fame.
