Paul Johnson & Friends Debut Performance Oct. 26

Submitted by pjmoto on October 29, 2014.
Show Announcements

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:

  • RON EGLIT (guitar and bass) ‹ bassist for Dick Dale for 20 years; then more recently, guitarist for the Surfaris (Wipe Out) for another decade.
  • MATT QUILTER (guitar and bass) ‹ veteran guitarist for the past twenty years with the innovative instro band the Reventlos.
  • DUFF PAULSON (drums) ‹ veteran drummer who played for many years with the classic traditional-style instro band the Torquays.

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!

Tix: $18 - call 626/798-6236

Show Announcements

'Legends of Surf Music' concert to premiere in Vista Calif. on October 25, 2014 at the Moonlight Amphitheatre.

Stars and Stripes Events, a concert production company located in Escondido, Calif., is promoting a surf rock concert with former members of eight of the best known famous surf rock bands of the sixties. The promoter will donate 10 percent of ticket sales directly to Wounded Warrior Homes also located in Vista Calif. The concert is at the Moonlight Amphitheatre in Vista on October 25.

The concert line-up of performers will include former members of the Hondells, Castells, Marketts and the Routers; all performing for the first time in 50 years with several original members.

Also performing are former and original members of the Beach Boys, Surfaris, Jan & Dean, Chantays, Belairs and Dick Dale & the Del Tones.

These surf bands are attributed with such songs as "Surfin USA," "Wipeout," "Little Deuce Coupe," "Little Honda," "Surfer Joe," "Pipeline," "Out of Limits," "Misirlou," "Let's Go Trippin," "Little Old Lady From Pasadena," "Dead Mans' Curve," "Mr. Moto," and dozens more.

John Jerd, the President of Stars and Stripes Events, said, "This concert will make music history because the audience hasn't seen some of these groups in decades, and never all these famous band members in one concert."

The "Legends of Surf Music" concert will be held at the Moonlight Amphitheatre at 1200 Vale Terrace Drive Vista, CA 92084, on October 25, 2014.

Stars and Stripes Events, and Jerd & DiMaggio Productions of Escondido California, headed up by John Jerd, produce and promote concerts primarily for 501(c)3 non-profit organizations; especially where the non-profit serves our military heroes.

Complete information can be viewed at http://StarsAndStripesEvents.com and tickets can be purchased at http://www.VisTixOnline.com - or by calling the box office Monday through Friday 12 noon to 5 p.m. at 760-724-2110.

Surf guitar at NW Acoustic Guitar Contest & Concert Sept. 27

Submitted by Squid on September 17, 2014.
Show Announcements

The FIRST annual Northwest Acoustic Guitar Contest & Concert will be on Sat. Sept 27, 2014 in Vancouver, Washington (Portland, Oregon metro area). It will be at Shorty's Garden Center, 10006 SE Mill Plain Blvd. 

The first part of the contest is singer-guitarist (noon-2:25pm), so we'll skip to the second part which is acoustic fingerstyle. Six competing guitarists will each perform solo for ten minutes.

At 3:30 this contest will be followed by an acoustic surf guitar performance by Conrad of the Insanitizers surf guitar band. This will also be solo for ten minutes. Conrad intends to demonstrate the attractiveness of flatpicked instrumental guitar music as a category for future contests and concerts.

Attendance from noon to 4pm is entirely free. The music is suitable for all ages.

The Concert part will start at 6pm with a reprise by the winners of the two contests. From 6:45-7:30pm singer-guitarist Scott Gallegos will perform. He will be followed by two acoustic fingerstyle guitarists who do not sing, including national award winner John Standefer.

Here is the detailed schedule (.pdf).
