Surf Kings new website

Submitted by obiwan92054 on August 22, 2014.
Bands

First off I would like to thank Jeff "Big Tiki Dude" for inviting the Surf Kings to play his 7th annual Surf Guitar Convention 101! We had a really good time, and what a great event it was. As a result of that show, the Surf Kings are back! Tom Stanton on lead guitar, the original drummer Jim Harris back on the skins, Pat Raymond returning once again on bass, Ben Redman was added on supporting guitar, and lastly Ray Mangigian on smoldering sax.

The band has never sounded better, and with this renewed energy we built a new website www.thesurfkings.com Please check it out and sign up for the newsletter so we can keep you posted on any news or up coming shows or events.

Also, if anybody out there has pics or video of the Surf Kings we would be interested in checking it out for the new website.  You can contact me at surfking1@aol.com

Thanks, Tom Stanton and the Surf Kings

KELP On The Beach - Grover Beach, CA

Submitted by Buzz on August 17, 2014.
Show Reports

Last Saturday in Grover Beach, slightly South of Pismo Beach, Santa Barbara's Surf Band KELP played a corporate gig for CoastHills Credit Union.  CoastHills employs 225 people with branches from Lompoc, CA to Paso Robles, CA.  Beach Butlers out of San Luis Obispo set up tiki torches, fire rings, chairs, cabanas, food & beer while KELP played 4 long sets, ending with their last song as the sun disappeared over the horizon. 

Not only were these the nicest people (they paid us each in cash with little thank you cards and hand written notes) but they hauled our gear with trucks down to the beach.  Mind you, you can drive trucks, dune buggies, ride horses and camp at Grover Beach.  There's a little bit of everything going on here. 

My 7 year old daughter, Keilana brought her maracas, tambourine and an assortment of shakers, joining us on stage and salting the music with her "instruments".  And at the end of the night she said to me "So, daddy - how much money did I make at this gig?"  Really?  Naturally I paid her an undisclosed amount.

To those of us that have had this experience of playing on the beach, facing the waves as they crash on the shore, watching bikini beauties stroll by, guys ripping it up on the waves and finally, the setting of the sun, there is absolutely nothing like it.  It's truly a zen moment.  I encourage everyone that can to do this!

Looking forward to playing the third year in a row next year.  Thanks CoastHills!

Submitted by DonnyX on August 12, 2014.
Show Reports

Hey Everybody,

Heading into the Big Event in SoCal on Saturday, there was a great show at The Double Down Saloon here in Las Vegas:

Turbo of The Vermin's surf band "The New Waves" started it off with some great 80's conversions.

The Boss Martians came in next with a dead on set apparently featuring stuff from '98 ish. They will be in S.D. on Friday.

Escorted by Frankie (of the pool boy's fame) to finish were The Surf Coasters from Japan. I have seen them in Vegas before and they were as awesome as always. I love their version of "Green Hornet."

In attendance beside my awesome self was Ruckus from the Vermin and A&E's "Bad Ink" fame, Jesse and Jeff from "The Swank Bastards", Dj Rex Dart was spinnin', Moss the owner and Louie the Lech of "Blood Cocks Uk" were seen as well.

A Great Event enjoyed by all !!!

See Ya Saturday !!
