Their spectrum ranges from Hawaiian songs to pop songs and pieces influenced by rock 'n' roll.
Although the formation and band name changed over the years, the unmistakable sound of the Hawaiian guitar always remained the trademark of the "Hulas". Today, the house band of the Basel Hula Club is called "Hawaiian Memories" and their spectrum ranges from Hawaiian songs to pop songs and pieces influenced by the then emerging rock 'n' roll. Even after decades of existence in the Swiss music scene, the "Hawaiians with Basel roots" still manage to inspire all generations with their music and positive vibes.
The Basel guitarist, Walter Roost, heard the Dutch band "Kiliman-Hawaiians" on the radio for the first time in 1945. Fascinated by their popular Hawaiian music, he founded the group "Hula Hawaiians" together with three colleagues. At the beginning of the 1960s, this group made it onto the German hit parade with its dynamically arranged South Sea sounds. The band became popular, however, not only with their stirring tracks, but above all with countless memorable live concerts at home and abroad, as well as with radio and television appearances.
The meeting place is the pavilion in the park.
