Permalink UNSTEADY FREDDIE's Videos & Pix from the 2013 SURF GUITAR 101 CONVENTION WEEKEND (Aug 8-11 2013)

New Topic
Goto Page: 1 2 Next

Hello to all those who attended the wonderful SURF GUITAR 101 CONVENTION WEEKEND for 2013. And of course to those who didn't, who will have the benefit of viewing pix and videos from many Members of this Forum. I shot about 4 and 1/2 disks worth of material!! I have no idea of how many videos that incorporates -- I will let you know that figure once I have downloaded all of the material on the five disks.

My first task will be to load in all of my photographs into my Flickr account. Once I have cleared away the pix that are valueless, I will package them in a Flickr Set, and post the link here.

I still to have to finish all the videos from Day 3 of the 2013 Surfer Joe Summer Festival. Check out that thread to understand why all the delays. http://surfguitar101.com/forums/topic/21678/?page=1. Long story short, I now will have the time and energy to get that done.

There are so many people to shout-out for their efforts to pull together this amazingly special surf music filled weekend, such as Big Tiki Dude, Tiki Tena, all the musicians who donated their time and equipment for the Convention and other shows. So many good people in the surf community donated their time, it amazed me. All the clubs that allowed this music to be performed live; the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum (especially DragonFly Linda and John Miller); and of course all the bands and musicians who played on top of their game. I attended shows over a 4 day period; plus I was able to make it to the Fender Visitor Center (I didn't get there in time for a tour b/c of some nonsense at the car rental place in LAX). So needless to say there is a lot of material to assemble.

I would appreciate it if someone could send me an accurate list of who played in each of the "Jams" that kicked-off the Convention. I would like to include their names in the notes of each video I shot. Send the list to me at schizofredric@yahoo.com.

I gotta also say how surprised I was that my buddy Davie Allan got up to perform (with Burnin' Mike Vernon's Three Balls Of Fire). Davie was a childhood hero of mine, and when I heard that he was going to perform with The Arrows in 2004 in Calella Spain (for an event called, 'The WipeOut Weekend'), I just had to attend. Here's a link to it, http://homepage.ntlworld.com/jon.fagg/Calella.htm. I did an interview with him there for my Internet Radio Show called 'Twang Shebang', and ultimately put together a 'Special Edition' to highlight his brilliant career and catalogue of music. I ultimately was able to release 2 albums on my record label (Lifeguard Records) by Davie and his Arrows!! Who would have thought?? And as if that wasn't enough, the 2 albums were distributed and marketed by SPINOUT RECORDS, which is owned by EDDIE (and Wife Melanie) ANGEL!! I thought I had to be dreaming.....

Really struggled with leaving Southern California this time around. I get a strong feeling in my gut that I "belong" out there. Maybe I can figure out a way to maintain homes on both coasts at some point? I simply cannot give up my home and my life in NYC, as I am way too entrenched here. Plus I have a 25 year old Daughter who lives here; and I am the only living parent she has (her Mom sadly died of ovarian cancer in 2004).

Enough of all of that. Stay tuned for my videos and pictures, as soon as I can get to them.

Jeff Hanson -- brother, you outdid yourself!! You too Tiki Tena!! I hope that in the end all of your hard work and the stress it caused you paid off for you two (and others who helped you). You are an amazing duo - you give so much of yourselves it is incredible.

I also want to throw out another shout-out, to Martin Cilia of The Atlantics, and Sr. Surf, Lorenzo Surfer Joe Valdambrini. These 2 gentlemen showed me extra-special kindness; it was a perfect "continuation" from the 2013 Surfer Joe Summer Festival, in a way.

Man Oh Man, do you all not agree that SURF'S UP? Like, WAY WAY WAY WAY UP?

here are my pictures from the 2013 SG 101 CONVENTION Week-End (Aug 8-11) -- I attended a lot of music events over this 4-day span. http://www.flickr.com/photos/unsteadyfreddie/sets/72157635104929253/

I shot those photos over a 4-day period, starting August 8 2013, and ending August 11, 2013 in Southern California. On August 8th I attended a show at THE PIKE in Long Beach. August 9th I was at THE PURPLE ORCHARD in El Segundo. On August 10th I first attended the SG 101 CONVENTION all day in Los Alamitos. On the same day that evening I attended a concert in Anaheim a THE JUKE JOINT. On Sunday August 11th I attended SURFIN' SUNDAYS at the foot of the Pacific Ocean in Huntington Beach.

Thanks man!

Jeff(bigtikidude)

I have re-uploaded and am re-posting this video of MARTIN CILIA performing on August 8th at THE PIKE in Long Beach California. I confess...it is re-done b/c I regretably originally posted it with the wrong title. My apologies to my pal Martin and all his fans The truth will set you free.

The link to the video I called RETURN OF THE DOLPHIN is no longer operable. The video has been deleted.

The proper title is: "RETURN OF THE SURF GUITAR"

The proper video link is:

I have now loaded in all my videos into my YouTube Channel for August 8, and August 9 -- I will open "to the public" the ones from August 9 tomorrow (unless as usual I have trouble sleeping, I will do them later). Of course after they are "public" I will post them here in this thread.

I am on the verge of loading in the videos from the 2013 Convention

question: does anyone have a list of all the surf "jams" that kicked off the Convention? That is, who participated in each "jam"?? I always like to get all relevant information into my videos. I believe someone already sent me a list of some sort, but I am not sure how this list was sent to me (via Facebook Message, e/mail, etc.???)

thanks so much! I want to get these up on Sunday afternoon (after I sleep off the long night due to my monthly Surf-Rock Shindig)

whoever can help, thx so much, in advance

with gratitude

UN / F Cool

my e/mail is schizofredric@yahoo.com;

If someone has a list and is a Facebook friend, you can send it to me as a Message

On August 9 2013 I attended my second show as part this year's SG 101 CONVENTION WEEK-END: it was held @ The Purple Orchid in El Segundo, California

The 2 artists performing were MARTIN CILIA and SURFER JOE. I shot 8 videos that evening, and here they are, complete with direct links to where they can be found on my YouTube Channel:

That now covers my Day 1 (Aug 8), and Day 2 (Aug 9) of the 2013 SURF GUITAR 101 CONVENTION WEEKEND. At the moment I am loading into my YouTube Channel 18 videos from the Convention on Aug 10 (with many more to follow from that event). I will be asking for help from time to time for song titles as well as the name of artist(s) who recorded the original (when there's a cover).

One can always go to my YouTube Channel at any time to check the many archived videos that are there.

Ahem??

Jeff(bigtikidude)

just had the stitches taken out of my right foot on Friday November 1 2013 following my foot operation from October 2013

I will be resting at home essentially all of this week

which means I will have the time to finally finish this project, as I have videos from the SG101 Convention, then the post-Convention concert in the evening, and of course Sunday afternoon at the Oceanfront @ Huntington Beach that weekend this past August

frankly I am embarrassed about this whole project and the fact that I haven't finished getting all of my videos loaded into YouTube, and in turn dropping the hyperlinks into this Thread

I owe all parties concerned and website users and fans of instrumental surf music a huge unsteady apology

I will begin the next round of videos with the SG 101 Surf Jams that took place at The Starting Gate on Saturday morning August 10 2013
