Wrecking Crew Documentary Coming Soon

Submitted by DennyTedesco on April 04, 2012.
Surf Scene News

Hi, 

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.

Denny Tedesco

Eddie Bertrand signed longboard up for auction

Submitted by reventlos on March 11, 2012.
Surf Scene News

Eddie Bertrand signed longboard up for auction on eBay!

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!

Internet surf music radio 24 hours a day

http://www.laut.fm/#surf

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.

Best wishes,

Ruediger (formerly working for Herbert Hooke´s NPR Records, Germany)
