Sierra Surf Music Camp 2015

Submitted by Pyronauts on January 23, 2015.
Surf Scene News

Howdy Campers!

It's that time of year again - time to sign up for Sierra Surf Music Camp!  What the heck is SSMC you may wonder?  It is the ultimate weekend camping out with some of the finest surf musicians and people on the planet!  The camp is located near the historic gold mining town of Nevada City at a beautifully wooded 4,000-foot elevation and is situated beside the picturesque Bear River.  Surf jams start the weekend off before groups of campers are assembled into SurfBand101 classes.  Through rehearsals and one-on-one lessons with pro musicians like John Blair, Dusty Watson, Dave Wronski, Ferenc Dobronyi, Matt Quilter, and many others, campers will learn to improve their skills on their instrument.  Classes will also be offered in songwriting, the history of surf music, instrument set-up/maintenance, and ukulele.  Each day culminates with surf music by the campfire and at the end of camp each SurfBand101 group will perform what they’ve learned.  SSMC is open to all ages and levels of musicians and families are strongly encouraged to attend.

May 28-31, 2015

The Blue Hawaiians on Kickstarter (soon)

Submitted by thebluehawaiians on January 21, 2015.
Bands

The Blue Hawaiians have spent the past six months working with grammy nominated producer (and creator of the hit compilation series The Ultra Lounge for Capitol Records) Brad Benedict on arrangements of thirteen classic Christmas songs for what we think will be one of the coolest instrumental Christmas records of all time. Inspired by everything from Phil Spector to Link Wray, Les Baxter to Gene Krupa, this is going to be amazing! We will be starting a Kickstarter campaign in early February to raise the funds to make this happen. We will have some very cool rewards to offer. So look for a posting here in the next few weeks. No new shows to announce at the moment.

Aloha!!

Danny McMartin

Submitted by Danny on January 21, 2015.
Bands

Danny McMartin delivers a stampede of luscious surf rock on his debut solo release “Surfer Libre”.

Danny is a musician originally from Sydney Australia relocating to London in the name of pursuing music, adventure and stepping out in faith. His Surf Rock style pays tribute to legends such as The Beach Boys, Dick Dale and The Shadows. His years of experience have seen him performing intimate shows for Amy Winehouse, members of Jamiroquai and The Clash. To sharing the stage with members of INXS playing their greatest hits.

His latest EP is an organic feel good vibe, bringing with it an environmental message about respecting God’s creation and appreciating what we’ve been given. The tunes are a modern take on a classic genre presenting it in a fresh way for a new generation to discover and embrace. Staying true to form and respecting the forefathers of this style some tracks are instrumental giving a platform form that transports the listener straight to the beach. Balancing the EP on the other tracks with lyrics that any ocean lover will relate to that inspires a heart to preserve what we have, while we still have it.

Submitted by surfbeatslbc on January 14, 2015.
Show Announcements

My band is playing at Suzy's in Hermosa Beach, Jan 15, from 8 to 11.  It's our first show and we're playing 3 sets (from 8 to 11), so guaranteed I'll screw up a time or two (or several).  Come watch the train wreck.  Our set list is all surf/instro standards.  Show is free and we are the worst named surf band in So. Cal:  Red Surf

Hope to see one or two of you there, should be a good time, and I'll welcome constructive criticism.  Cheers.
