Help us meet our monthly goal:
I was just turned onto this very cool site and wanted to introduce myself and my documentary. My name is Denny Tedesco and I am the director of the film, The Wrecking Crew. I'm new at this so forgive me if I mis-step in regards to blogging or sending out news. I noticed the documentary has been mentioned a few times and I wanted to let you know that we're not giving up an hopefully the film will be out this summer.
We are having screenings around the country in the next month or so. Vancouver on the April 15th, Phoenix on April 17th and then to Philadelphia on April 25th and April 28th and 29th. One of your readers from Philadephia turned me onto Surfguitar101.com so I'm hoping we'll get to meet many of the guitar players.
This is my labor of love. My father was guitarist, Tommy Tedesco. If I can figure out how to send a picture, I'd love to share the photos we took of his Telecaster that he worked with on the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, Marketts, Routers, T-Bones and so many more recordings.
Please take a look at the out takes on www.wreckingcrewfilm.com
Best to all of you who play and love the music.
Just a note to let you know that I'm making myself available for such things as giving guitar lessons, coaching young surf bands in getting their act together, producing your band's next CD (or playing guitar on your studio project), etc. etc. If this is of interest to you, please see my more detailed post in the "Classified: Musicians and gigs wanted" section. Thanks! — pj

This very special 9'0" longboard, graciously donated by Irvin Surfboards of Huntington Beach, was the grand prize raffle item at the Benefit for Eddie Bertrand, held last winter. For those not aware, Eddie was one of the pioneers of SoCal surf music, both with the seminal Belairs and Eddie and the Showmen. Eddie is battling severe health problems, and I was thrilled to be a part of his benefit, and doubly fortunate to win the raffle for surfboard. Check out some highlights from the concert.
The board is in perfect condition and is a work of art in and of itself. It's been signed not only by Eddie Bertrand, but by all the performers --- first, second, and third-wavers --- who came together to help out a brother. This board has been a proud part of my decor for the last year, but it is time to put it to work to further assist Eddie with his medical bills. This auction is proceeding with Eddie's knowledge and approval, and 100% of the proceeds will be forwarded to Eddie at its conclusion. PLEASE step up to the plate for a most worthy cause. Local pick-up preferred, but if you are willing to bid to help Eddie, we'll work something out. Thank you for looking, please place your bid now!

My friend Edgar from Bremen, Germany discovered this site. ENJOY it. Sometimes the track playing is shown a little later than the music started playing, advertising is in the beginning of every log in, but then you ll be surprised about the choice of songs!! Don´t mind when the download is interrupted, it will start continuing in a few seconds.

Danish surf rock trio The Good The Bad release their new single '023' in February, accompanied by a new film directed by Jeppe Kostrup, who infamously created the previous TGTB video hit '030'. A video teaser of the new '023' video is now online on the bands youtube channel.
'023' sees TGTB delve into harder surf riffs than ever before, coupled with their customary short and sharp twists and accompanied by lions and war cries as backing vocals. The full '023' video will be launched on January 4th, with the full single unveiled on Febrary 13th.
'030' is now on the brink of 3 million views and is viewable here.

As many of you probably have seen by now, a brand new compilation album is coming out - Brave New Surf. What you may not know is that the impetus behind this album is twofold. First, to present some of the very best surf bands playing today. Secondly, to use this compilation as a promotional tool to expose new audiences to this great music. Double Crown Records agreed to print up extra copies of the album with the sole purpose of sending them out to music reviewers, websites and magazines. But to do this will take extra funds. Packaging and postage costs add up quick, thus we came up with this Kickstarter project.
Please go to our Kickstarter page and check out all the premiums and make a donation if you can. Absolutely 100% of all funds donated will go towards the promotion of this record and if we're successful this may lead to more releases. If you can, share the project on all your social media and email all your friends. This is our big push to get surf music out into a more public consciousness and our success depends upon you.
Remember, there is a limited time for this campaign, it concludes on Friday Dec 9th, so we have to reach our goal by then.
