A few notes about each band:

The Space Cossacks– Originally from Washington D.C., The Space Cossacks are widely recognized as one of the most popular and influential bands of the 1990's great surf revival, if not all time. We are honored that The Space Cossacks, with their original line-up intact, will appear at the SG101 Convention as part of their 10th anniversary reunion tour.

Frankie and the Pool Boys- This Bay Area group was never supposed to perform live, but agreed to come together for the SG101 Convention. Featuring Ferenc Dobronyi from Pollo Del Mar with Danny and Tony from The TomorrowMen, Karen of Meshugga Beach party, and Naotaka Seki from Japan's Surf Coasters on drums with several special guests.

The Wadadli Riders- The Surf Music Kings of the Caribbean! Lorenzo Valdambrini, the leader of the band is also the founder of the hugely successful Surfer Joe Festival in Italy. This will be the Wadali Riders second tour of California.
(Along with the Space Rangers from Germany, we are pleased to have The Wadadli Riders as our first international bands at the SG101 convention.)

The Insect Surfers- Planet Earth's longest running modern surf bands has been preforming since the Summer of 1979. They have released 3 CDs, and a best-of album, with appearances on about 30(!) compilations. The Insect Surfers strive to bring you the best in modern surfadelic sounds.

The Space Rangers- From Ulm, Germany, The Space Rangers' stomping beats and bass lines are the solid reef on which the delayed guitar riffs break, topped with whitecaps of organ harmonies. If Godzilla had a favorite band, it would be the Space Rangers.

The Atomic Mosquitos- From Washington D.C., The Atomic Mosquitos are led by the twin reverb guitars of Joe Marencic and Paul Carson with Stephen Blickenstaff adding theremin touches and driven along by Sean Rush on bass and Craig Stang's drums. They deliver a full-on, uptempo surf assault. They have released three CDs.

The Surfside IV- With fans numbering in the dozens, these surf rockers from Sonora, Arizona have managed to thrill themselves and audiences alike, despite their willingness to don a fez. Never afraid to make a true spectacle and always providing an ample target area for empty beer cans, a Surfside IV show is a veritable reverb-soaked cavalcade of high-speed guitar, bass and drum acrobatics.

The Men of Mystery- A tribute to England's legendary Shadows, this group features members of The Detonators, joined by Marty Tippens (The Planktones, The Trespassers), and Abdel Khineche (a long time Shadows devotee.)

The Legends of Surf Jam - We have asked members several First Wave groups to join a fantastic, all-star backing band, to perform the music we cherish. This a very rare opportunity for you to see the songs performed by the people that first recorded and wrote them.

Starting the day's music will be the very popular SG101 Members Jam.
I am thinking of trying something different to organize it this year.
Look for a separate thread on that later.

Please plan on coming 4PM, Thursday, August 5th to a BBQ at my place, followed by a show in nearby Anaheim.
Monday, August 9th will be a day of sight seeing and field trips.

here is the info for all of the shows from wed. aug. 4th. to thurs. aug 12th.

And they got a lot of critical and fan acclaim and were recognized as one of the top surf/instro acts of the nineties surf music revival.

I just took that quote from their myspace.

Round 3 looks great! I'm stoked for this. I think I'll come back this year.

Thanks guys,
and here I was expecting to come home to 2 or 3 pages of replys.
Hmmmm. well we got 5 + months to promote the hell out of this thing.
I have a feeling this year will be to capacity 375 or so I think.
But maybe we'll try to push it a bit.

by the way I posted Ferenc's version(better worded) and spell checked.
Sorry for the Mosqui-toes Craig,
Funny thing is, it doesn't come up as mis-spelled,
but Reverb does, WTF? Face Palm

Whorehay, get over it all ready,
some tribute bands are really good.

Hope to see at least half of SG101 members there.
