Everybody’s gone surfin’, Surfin’ USA.

RON HARTMAN / THE CHRONICLELast week marked the final performance of the Cottage Grove Concerts in the park series hosted by the Cottage Grove Chamber of Commerce, above. The headliners, The "Men from S.U.R.F." brought the groovy tunes of the Beach Boys  to Bohemia Park. 

COTTAGE GROVE – It was 1963 and the Beach Boys had just released their first big hit, Surfin' USA. Dick Dale is largely credited with creating surf music, which was especially popular from 1958-64, just before the Beatles came to America. Jan and Dean were immensely popular . . .
