Santo and Johnny
This brother steel guitar (Santo) and acoustic guitar (Johnny) duo made pop history with their timeless instrumental, "Sleep Walk." Taking up the guitar in their early teens, the brothers wrote and recorded "Sleep Walk" for Trinity Records, a local Brooklyn label. After the song got some local play, it was leased to a larger label, Canadian-American, which took it national. In August 1959, the song reached #1 on the Billboard Top 40 list. The brothers continued to record and perform until at least 1964. Mort Garson, later famed for his Moog albums, produced "Sleep Walk" and the brothers' first 6 albums.
