New site offers drum loops just for Surf!

Submitted by Steve_Chapman on July 21, 2008.
Surf Scene News
Home recording and surf music enthusiasts ... here's a cool new retro-website made just for you:

Steve's Springy Surf Drums

www.stevesspringysurfdrums.com


There are four different packs for $4.99-$9.99 that offer reverb/non-reverb loops in Apple/AIFF formats, so that both Mac and PC users can create some fun surf songs at home.  If you don't have access to a real drummer or quality surf drum loops, then these are perfect for you.  Or even if you're a drummer, in a band with a drummer, or have access to a studio and drummer ... these loops are still great to have on hand to build everything from demo songs or complete albums. 
 
Spring on over!

Jerry Cole 1939 - 2008

Submitted by Brian on May 30, 2008.
Surf Scene News
This is from a broadcast email from 3 Balls of Fire guitarist Mike Vernon:

Our dear friend, Jerry Cole died Wednessday night at his home in Corona, California. Jerry's wife, Gale, was with him when he suffered a massive heart attack. Jerry was 68 years old and is survived by Gale and their daughters, Monique and Katrina, and son, Cane. Jerry's other son, Keith, died just a year earlier at the age of 28. Funeral services are still pending but a public memorial is also being planned for the near future.
 
Jerry Coletta was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin in 1939. After moving to Chicago with his mother, he started cutting his musical chops in the gritty Chicago blues scene of the fifties. It wasn't long after that he found himself in the Champs and had his first hit, "Tequila". He and Glen Cambell shared guitar duties with the group and eventually both landed in Los Angeles where they began to get studio work. It wasn't too long before they were in the thick of it and with a loosley knit group of steller musicians became known as the Wrecking Crew. Jerry was probably one of the most recorded guitarist in history and appeared on an impressive and diverse list of who's who in American popular music including virtually all of the Phil Spector groups, many of the Beach Boys records including "Pet Sounds", Gene Vincent, B.B. King, The Byrds, Roger MsGuinne, Frank and Nancy Sinatra, Lee Hazlewood, Ricky Nelson, Paul Revere and the Raiders and Roger Miller. And as Jerry liker to say, "and that was just the first day!" He also did a stint as band leader on Shindig where he performed with the likes of The Rolling Stones and Jerry Lee Lewis. He also led the band on The Sonny and Cher Show and was even in Elvis Presley's back-up band in "King Creole".

The Trashmen/The Chantays

Submitted by talentagent on May 29, 2008.
Surf Scene News

Greetings Friends,

I was just informed that THE TRASHMEN/THE CHANTAYS Proposal was not  accepted, at the Venue in Southern California. All of us on the Management Team are disappointed of course, but this will not deter us. I can speak for all of us involved, that we totally believe that  this package show---was one of the best Entertainment Events around.

If any of you have  "Contacts" that you think might help get this  Show off the ground, let me know. I will then pass on the information to the others.

Thanks for all your support.

John Eckert

Talent Agent/Coordinator,
