Sunny and The Sunglows

This Mexican-American group originated from San Antonio, Texas, USA. The group was created in 1959 and originally contains Sunny Ozuna, Jess, Oscar and Ray Villanueva, Tony Tostado, Gilbert Fernandez, and Alfred Luna. Sunny as well as the Sunglows (who also documented as Sunny AS WELL AS THE Sunliners) were mostly of the Hispanic acts to achieve the pop and spirit markets, where they sang aged R&B strikes with an average Hispanic strategy, laid-back and soulful. Their strikes comprised a remake of Small Willie John’s traditional ‘Chat To Me’ (US R&B quantity 12 and pop quantity 11, 1963), a remake of Tony Bennett’s ‘Rags To Riches’ (1963), and a remake from the Five Tips’ ‘Out Of View Out Of Brain’ (1964). In 1965, the group have scored a pop hit using a saxophone-dominated polka instrumental, ‘Peanuts (La Cacahuata)’, and far from the group’s following recordings had been brassy polka instrumentals for the Mexican-American community.
