just a Heads up about the Surf Guitar 101 Convention,
1st off its gonna be many things surf music, and instrument/gear swap meet, multi media presentations, 4 Bands surf jam/Karaoke (sign up list to join will be posted soon) many songs, you play a Standard along with a Live backing band and get together
plus more maybe.
I am still talking to people about coming to it, and being involved. But I wanted to Officially announce when it will be.
Sat. Aug 2nd. at Suzy’s in Hermosa.
noon to 5 pm
Later that night.
The Madeira from Midwest, Pollo Del Mar from Nor. Cal., Insect Surfers and Detonators are playing 8 pm till Midnight.
On Sun. Aug 3rd at the Huntington Beach Pier, 11 am to 5 pm will be.
The Fabulous Nomads, The Relix, Aquasonics from Colorado, Pollo Del Mar, The Maderia, and The Surftones, Feat. Matt Q from Reventlos, and Kerry Chester ex of DD’s 80s band.
I Figured it would be best to announce it asap, as I know the sooner the better, for arranging for airfare and sleeping and car accommodations.
There is also a San Diego show with Pollo, Maderia, Secret Samurai, and Zombie Surf Camp, on the Fri. nite. Aug 1st. If anybody would like to go down there to get an early start on the Reverb overdose weekend.
Let me know if you have any questions, and I will be posting more info soon, and Official line up of bands, and guest speakers.
Surf Guitar 101 Convention. Sat. Aug 2nd, Suzy’s Hermosa Ca.
