Bob Spaulding Guitar on eBay

Submitted by Brian on January 30, 2008.
Surf Scene News
I received this via a long forwarded email chain... -BN

Happy New Year to Everyone,

I’m writing to let you all know that one of my Venture model Aria guitars will be auctioned off through eBay starting around 02/01/2008. The proceeds will be used toward a benefit fund for Tony Carbone a young friend and musician. Tony has been battling a virulent form of cancer for the past 3 years and all his friends are gathering together to provide the necessary support.

Tony has been my son Ian’s writing and musical partner for more than 25 years. They met in 4th grade and became fast friends while beginning to play, sing, and write songs at the Spalding house. Tony also became intertwined in Ian’s story by introducing him to his future wife Sandra Abrahamian. Of course Ian and Sandra got married in 1998 with Tony as their best man. Tony and Ian recorded their first songs in the 5th Venture’s home studio while young teenagers. It almost landed their first recording contract with Electra Records (they were only sixteen). They both evolved into accomplished musicians and artists. Tony’s group Bike Ride recorded several CDs released both in the US, Europe, and Japan.

Please let anyone know that may have an interest in this 5th Venture autographed Ventures’ model guitar that was played by Bob Spalding on the Ventures Japan Tour of 2005. If you have any questions or interests in this auction please let me know. This is for a great cause to get Tony going again and back to his music.

I hope everyone will have a great 2008.

Sincerely,
Bob Spalding
The Ventures

Hi all, Claudao here from Estrume'n'tal in Brazil.

Once again we are promoting the only Brazilian surf music/instro rock festival, the 8th Minas Gerais State Surf Music Championship www.aobra.com.br/campeonato - in Portuguese but you can find plenty of pictures, videos and songs there!

Last year we were honored with the presence and performance of Daddy-o Grande from Los Straitjackets! Check out the videos here:
Rockula: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dR-_5RxS2NM
Wrong Planet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6umvhHfDR8

This year the festival will happen between 19-22 March in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and this is an open invitation to all surf bands who wish to participate. Unfortunately we have no cash to pay for airfare but we'll be glad to set any bands up who could come with hotel, food, some beer and great party opportunities. We can also try to set up a Brazilian tour for interested bands.

If your band of any surf band you know are interested, please drop me a line at claudao@aobra.com.br

Thanks to all and happy reverbs,

Claudao

Music Conference in Harrisburg PA - MMC12

Submitted by WitchesInBikinis on January 16, 2008.
Surf Scene News
If you have ever been curious about music conferences, this is a good one to attend.  I'm not affiliated with them in any way except by prior attendance / performance...
Terrific music industry panels, lots of bands but not too many.   I have considered organizing a Surf Music Conference and this is the one I'd model it on...
Millennium Music Conference (MMC12)
Harrisburg, PA
Radisson Hotel

www.mmc12.com

Witches In Bikinis is performing on the main stage at the Radisson on Saturday night, 10:45 PM
We're not doing our surf song,  "Alien Surfer Babes" but we are doing "Moosejaw Millie", a kind of rockabilly song, and "Mermaids In Outer Space", just generally cool.
And another new song: "Freak Show Safari", and other favorites such as "Horror Flick Chicks" and "Zombie March"

Send me an email if you want to know more - we attended / performed last year.
