King Pelican

King Pelican


Surf and Instrumental Rock & Roll. All the vibe and groove of 1962.


Influenced by Link Wray and The Lively Ones but sounds like Los Straitjackets. King Pelican brings the FUN back into live music. Dancing the twist during a show is highly recommended.


King Pelican "Live" A seven song CD recorded live at a local gig.

Original King Pelican song "Rockin' Pelican Twist" in rotation at KSYM FM90.1 San Antonio,TX.
