Biography

RockBoar.com Picture     The Sentinals were a surf rock band from San Luis Obispo, California. The original lineup consisted of Tommy Nunes on lead guitar, Peter Graham on rhythm guitar, Gary Winburne on bass guitar, Bobby Holmquist on sax and Johnny Barbata on drums.

    In the summer of 1962, the group toured the country and opened for bands including The Coasters and The Righteous Brothers.

  Though they possessed a classic surf rock sound, The Sentinals were unique in their incorporation of Latin American influences, thanks to guitarist Tommy Nunes, who shines on tunes like "Latinia" and "Latin Soul"

    The Sentinals broke up in the mid-1960s, with future psychedelic-soul keyboardist/singer Lee Michaels joining for some time (although he did not record with them).
