The Casuals were a local dance band in the 1950s to 70s consisting primarily of Stan Christo, Bill Oliveira, and Gil Esguerra. They made a name for themselves at the Lucky 13 Club on MacArthur, and later opened their own club, Casuals on the Square at Jack London Square.
The Casuals first met and formed at Fremont High School, 3 class of 1955.
c.1969, Paul Gregory (G. Paul Layton) was their featured organist. [ Question: Who is the 4th person in the 1960 photo? Based on their HS photos, it appears to be L to R: unknown, Bill, Gil, and Stan. ]
