Tuck: You occasionally notice such bands. Often it turns out that FB just won't admit they're on FB. Or that they haven't admitted they're a band yet.

Eddie Bertrand Live at HBISM!!!

Submitted by Brian on May 18, 2007.
Show Announcements

Surfin Sundays Concert June 10th from 1 to 3 pm
Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum
411 Olive Ave Huntington Beach, CA 92648
SoundWaves & 60's Guest Legend Eddie Bertrand (The Belairs, Eddie & The Showmen)

After a lengthy hiatus venturing into various types of music Eddie Bertrand has decided to make a comeback to his old favorite surf music scene.  He told me on the phone the other day his friends have been bugging him to pick his old guitar and get back to playing the music that made him popular. Eddie was friends with the late SoundWaves drummer Jim Rudnick who passed away very recently after losing his battle with cancer.  The SoundWaves have been after him to play with them at the museum and he finally agreed.  He was most humble when I told him not a Surfin Sundays gig goes by that he isn't mentioned or a couple of his songs played. He didn't think anyone even remembered him let alone play the songs such as "Squad Car" & "Mr. Rebel" that he created and made popular.  Maybe some of you know but most of us don't that the siren on "Squad Car" was originally invented on the mouthpiece of a saxophone, not the guitar.  He got interested in playing with the SoundWaves because he and Jim were close friends who clicked together like bread and butter.

HBISM has the exclusive on Eddie's grand comeback during his special legendary guest performance with the SoundWaves. We at HBISM are STOKED about Eddie's comeback and invite you to join us in celebration of his success and pay respects to Jim while enjoying great music and it's all free. Eddie is a great guy and we wish him well.

Question about JBL Clones?

Submitted by stratrhythm on May 11, 2007.
Gear

Has anyone had any experience with the new Eminence Commonwealth 12's or 15's?

According to one source (supposedly an Eminence rep ) they are meant to sound like the JBL E120.

Although familiar with the D120F and D130F, I 'm not familiar with the "E" series.  What are the sound differences between "E" and "D" series?

How close do the Commonwealths come to the traditional sound of the D120F's and D130F's ? 

How do they compare to the Weber High Power California D120F and D130F  clones which I understand are very good.  It is worth noting that the Commonwealths' have the traditional JBL 4 inch voice coil, high power handling capability (225 watts), and are less expensive than the Webers ( $135 and $150 each).
