Almost 1 month away, all the other surf festivals are over,
lets get a big push and rev up for:
The 2012 Surf Guitar 101 Convention #5
and in doing so, I would like to announce the SG101 convention website:
Just Added, to the Legends of Surf portion of the Day.
GOING OUT WITH GUNS BLAZING!
THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE RUMBLERS, "BOSS"
The FIRST and ONLY reunion of all Rumblers on stage at one time
the Amazing Nocturnes (of 3rd Star to the Left fame)
It's that time of year again.
Time to announce the line up for the 5th Annual SG101 Convention, 2012!
It is with great pride and enthusiasm I present.
The 5th Annual Surf Guitar 101 convention, 2012
Jon & the Nightriders
The Venue will once again be the Starting Gate, in Los Alamitos, Ca.
The Date is Sat. Aug. 11th. 10am to 8pm, doors open at 8 am.
There will be of course the SG101 members jam, a Legends Jam(tribute Hour)
Huge Vendor Room, and Raffles and giveaways. and so much more...
I have been getting inquiries about the cost of the event,
and what about pre-sale tix.
We are not selling tix in advance, if you are coming from far away,
(Nor. Cal. or out of state)and want to be assured a ticket to the event.
Please e-mail me directly at Bigtikidude@yahoo.com, and I will put you on a list of guaranteed entrants.
The Cost for the Convention this year will be 30 dollars.
Considering that the cost of The Guitar Geek Fest is 55 or 60 dollars,
and Tiki Oasis is between 70 and 105 plus dollars.
I don't think that I am gouging the attendees. I hope that everyone understand that there is 2 European bands, and 4 bands that are coming from East of the Rocky mountains, and The cost of travel these days is not cheep. I would like to be able to pay the bands well to help cover those costs. 10 Hours divided by 30 dollars is 3 dollars an hour.
Is that really that much?
Thanks for understanding.
There will once again be The (Fri.) Pre-convention BBQ at my place.
And Pre-convention bar shows(Fri.)(San Diego, Anaheim, and El Segundo.
Post-Convention party/show (at The Doll Hut in Anaheim, Feat. Slacktone,The Disasternauts, and The Tequila Worms).
And Day after (Sun.) Huntington Beach pier show. 11am to 5 pm.
Then Post Pier show surf jam with Matt Quilter's wave machine at Venue to be determined.
There will also be some bar shows around So. Cal. by the 2 Euro bands
mid week before the convention.
There will probably be a Tour of the Fender Factory on Friday morning.
And there will once again be the wildly popular Surf Music History Tour on Monday morning, of Balboa/Newport,&Huntington Beach.
Also there will be some show's in Nor. Cal. the weekend before,
featuring El Ray, and Los Venturas.
And Tiki Oasis, Aug.16th-19th ( www.tikioasis.com ) will be the weekend after the SG101 convention. And This Years theme will be (SPY).
So I highly recommend staying for a week, and going to that also.
The Bands are promised to be quite good at that yearly HUGE event.
So make your plans now,
If possibly come out for a whole week, and soak in the So.Cal. scene!
