This is Noel. Reverb's at maximum an' I'm givin' 'er all she's got.

Crispy, you need to convince Destination Earth to make it down for the Friday night lineup as well...What a great lineup that would be...

THE KBK ... This is the last known signal. We offer Sanctuary.

ya beat me to post the line up for the SG101 convention.
I'm probably about a month away from having everything in stone.

Crispy, that is one helluva line-up!



I seriously need to rob a bank or win the lotto,
I wanna get an RV and travel the USA and go to all the shows.

Like I said, this is just the first wave..We've still got to book another 8-9 more bands, a lot of which won't be confirmed for a while (Sunday night always sort of trickles in, but every year has been the best night of music, in my not-so-humble opinion).

Maybe we should set up a Big Tiki Dude Instro Summit Kickstarter fund...


I'm already planning to be there.

This is Noel. Reverb's at maximum an' I'm givin' 'er all she's got.

Awesome! Thanks for organizing such events here on the East Coast.

I second that motion! One of the most underrated surf bands of the last decade or so.

Reverb, It's A Way Of Life!

STOKED! Headbang

Makes me wish I was still in Chatham County.

Incidentally, I'm also on the prowl for great NON-surf instrumental acts as well. Something along the lines of Sugarman 3 or McLemore Avenue would be groovy. If anyone has some thoughts, let me know.


i shall be there again (plus, i need to defend my 'title') Big Grin

I mentioned them to you last year. Hematovore is a legendary instrumental, non-surf band from here in Alabama. This year is their 20th anniversary. If you are interested, I can give you the contact info.

THE KBK ... This is the last known signal. We offer Sanctuary.

damn, I'm gonna have to miss this b/c there's a conflict with my MAY 5th "SURF-ROCK SHINDIG" at OTTO'S SHRUNKEN HEAD!!

one of these years I'll get there, God willing!!


I'll kick in $50 to help send a nice kid from California to the real land of instrumental rock!

Sorry Jeff................I just couldn't resist!

What a great cause! Count me in.


Traditional........speak softly and play through a big blonde amp. Did I mention that I sill like big blonde amps?

Do I see the need to start a kickstarter page in order to get Jeff over to the best coast?

THE KBK ... This is the last known signal. We offer Sanctuary.

Just added to the lineup:

The Coffin Daggers
Destination Earth

Friday night is ALREADY booked solid. That was quick...
