Mar-Kets, The (The Marketts)

The Mar-Kets’ Surfer’s Stomp (1962) – produced by Joe Saraceno (who would later work with The Ventures) – was one of the first surf music instrumentals featuring a five-man Californian group.

In fact, they were not really a group but a fluid collection of Los Angeles session musicians, working under the direction of Saraceno and guitarist Michael Z. Gordon.

Gordon wrote and co-produced Surfer’s Stomp, and later wrote their biggest hit, Out of Limits (1963).

The spelling of the band’s name was later changed to The Marketts.
