This was supposed to
be a "chaperoned" graduation trip to Hawaii organized, I believe, by
Frank Sullivan's mom. Believe me it wasn't too
chaperoned! I believe there were people from other schools, too.

My favorite part of the trip, other than the boys, was getting bikinis
made from any material you wanted for $10.

Burba and I formed a Peter Paul and Mary derived trio in 9th grade at
Jordan. Next year, at Burroughs, we added a couple of members: Lee
Kriske and Pam Funkhauser, class of 65'. Lee had a friend
named Leon Beauchemin. They were both in a car club, The Road Kings, I
think. Leon was a photographer who had done a lot of promo shots for Bob
Keane, the owner and producer of Del-Fi and Mustang Records and some
other indy labels.
Leon brought us to Bob, and we ended up getting signed and recording and
releasing a couple of 45's. We did a few shows around California,
opening for the Sun-Rays, Jesse Fuller, and The Bobby Fuller Four. We
ended up taking Leon's last name as our band name. It means
"beautiful road" or "beautiful way" in French. Unfortunately,
it was unpronounceable if you didn't know French. We should have spelled
it "Bo-Shay-Mins". On our second 45, Bob changed our name to
"The Tree Toppers" which we didn't find out about until we saw the
Nancy and Leon got
married, had two girls, and despite an eventual divorce, remained close
friends until Leon's death a couple of years ago.
