All sort of NEW from Forever Surf

Submitted by dp on May 29, 2014.

Our long-term project band, Forever Surf, has all sorts of news to share:

  1. Our brand spanking NEW cd "Storm Warning!" by Forever Surf is now available for sale.
  2. We have a brand NEW website full of band information, song samples and a little Paypal store to buy your very own cd or download direct from us for quickest shipping and service:
  3. We have a NEW Facebook page, be our friend: Forever Surf on Facebook
  4. We also offer our NEW cd and dowloads at cdbaby: Forever Surf at cdbaby
  5. Of course, you can purchase NEW Forever Surf at iTunes.
  6. The cd features our NEWEST project member, drummer Dave Martin.

A bit of history:  It all started in 2003 with rhythm guitarists "Reverb Mike" Finney and lead guitarist Deane "Can't Sing" Stanton meeting on a Ventures cruise. They began playing and eventually ran into bassist Dave "DP' Pike right here at the SG101 "players wanted" forum section. For several years we traveled around meeting up for occasional gigs and recording sessions at each other's towns and homes. Additionally, we did many "remote recording sessions" laying digital tracks and exchanging them via USPostalService and CD-R. Eventually, Deane met up with Dave Martin who gracously laid down all of our live drum tracks on the NEW cd. Please stop by our site and give it a listen,

thanks again SG101,

The Fabulous Blue Wabbits CD Release

Submitted by Mel on May 21, 2014.

Wabbit Wanch Studios Announces the New Album Instwoh-Mentals Vol. 1 from The Fabulous Blue Wabbits


Vancouver, British Columbia, CanadaWabbit Wanch Studios is pleased to announce the release of the debut album from The Fabulous Blue Wabbits, Instwoh-Mentals Volume 1, available from the Apple iTunes Store and other online music services on April 18, 2014.

 Instwoh-Mentals Volume 1 is a studio album of 16 originals songs in the electric guitar-oriented, instrumental style made popular during the early 1960’s by groups such as The Shadows in Europe and The Ventures in North America. This musical style is a lighter, more melodic precursor to the more driven “surf music” that later dominated the airwaves of Southern California with groups such as Dick Dale and the Deltones. On this album, The Fabulous Blue Wabbits present the full spectrum of the 1960’s instrumental style from European sophistication to Southern Californian “sun and fun”.

 Forty-five years after the original Blue Diamonds made their appearance on the Club 6 television program, the two remaining band members, Mel Patrick (guitars) and Fred Lichota (bass guitar), reformed in 2006 as The Fabulous Blue Wabbits. They no longer perform live, but continue to write and record 1960’s-style instrumental music. Their song “California Longboard” was featured on “A Day At The Beach” on Radio Station KCS in San Diego, California.

 Instwoh-Mentals Volume 1 is available now from the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon MP3, 7digital, 24-7, Rumblefish, the Google Music Store, and Shazam.

New Crazy Aces CD is Now Available!

Submitted by CrazyAces on May 08, 2014.

The new release from Crazy Aces is finally here! 

Jeff Senn, Justin "Oscar" Cary, Tom Hoey and Kiwamu Stewart advance the Crazy Aces experience with "Surfadelic Spy-a-Go-Go", a continuation and progression from their critically acclaimed 2012 debut "Greatest Hits Volume 2".

The title for the new record is derived from the band's own description of their unique, instrumental sound. Drawing from styles and genre's like Surf, Go-Go, Psychedelic, Spy and Garage Rock, the mission for this record was to better define the band's individual sound and record in a more simple, less Hi-Fi approach, in the spirit of the band's influences and mentors.

Self recorded, mixed and produced at their rehearsal space in Nashville, TN., Surfadelic Spy-a-Go-Go takes the listener on a journey through the twang imbued world of classic spy plots,  fuzz inflicted trips of psychedelia, the dreamy soundscapes of '60's Abbey Road ballads and the raw excitement of first wave Surf. All of these sounds are blended together in a way that is not only unique but totally Crazy Aces.

The CD is/will be available through, iTunes, Double Crown Records, Deep Eddy Records, and direct through Crazy Aces Facebook.
