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.
Olá Brasil! The Astro-nuts will be revisiting your land of Coco-nuts for a few select engagements this February! Tchau!

"Join The Brooklynite as they give the gift of the islands with their Tiki Yuletide Party! The crew at BK wants to bring the warmth of the Hawaiian islands to San Antonio for their last big bash of 2014. The team has arranged for the smooth surf and garage sounds of King Pelican to permeate the air as they craft fruity, boozy libations with spirits like Monkey Shoulder, Sailor Jerry, Ancho Reyes, Milagro, and Flor de Caña rums. One of SAs newest food trucks, LocaVore, will be offering a super special tiki menu that will focus on a whole Kahula pig. Accompanying the fine swine will be sides like pineapple kimchee, wasabi calamari, purple potato salad, and island mac and cheese. As always, Tiki Tuesday means guests are encouraged to don their tikiest of tiki garb. This is sure to be a wicked rad event, with food, music and garnish-heavy tiki cocktails to celebrate the season in a unique and fun way."
Friends and guitar music fans:
I am happy to tell you that I have a new band ‹ Paul Johnson & Friends ‹ and that this new band is about to make its DEBUT PERFORMANCE this coming weekend at the COFFEE GALLERY BACKSTAGE in ALTADENA.
I have hand-picked some of the top players from within the surf-instro genre to work with me at this endeavor of love. Accompanying me on the CGB stage for our first public performance will be:
As Ron & Matt are both adept at playing both the guitar and the bass, the plan here is to have them trade off between the two instruments, thus lending greater variety to guitar sounds within the band. The group's repertoire will include all the usual surf and rock-instrumental classics, as well as my own catalog of original tunes. The goal for Paul Johnson & Friends is to move the genre forward with new ideas for the music, while remaining faithful to the original style that defines the surf-instrumental genre.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 7 PM
THE COFFEE GALLERY BACKSTAGE
2029 LAKE STREET, ALTADENA (about 2 miles north of the 210 Fwy)
You should make reservations NOW ‹ shows here often sell out in advance; there are only 50 seats available in this intimate venue... but every seat is up close and personal and the sound is great too, making the CGB the IDEAL venue for what we do!
