to anyone that hasn’t made this event, START PREPARING FOR IT NOW AND GO. It’s like a big family reunion jam packed with killer music from start to finish. It’s pretty much impossible not to have one of the most memorable experiences of your life!

I am also planning the line up for sg101 in aug.

A big, big, thank-you to the Hanson family for the amazing party, food, and friendship. That was so cool and definitely a highlight of the trip for me.

Brian, I am just now getting back to the reviews you and Ivan wrote.
I didn't have time, then to read them. Cry

Anyways, I was extremely happy that you were able to make it to the BBQ/party this year. Its a bunch of work, we don't have to do, but we love to do. Its one of the best parts of the weekend for me too.
Next year we will have a seperate grill with some non meat items for the veggie/vegans in attendance. Wink

Still trying to catch my breath and decompress from the month-long craziness, but just had to say thanks and give tremendous props to THEE one and only BigTikiDude for once again organizing an event that helps us all remember how wonderful it is to be alive! It's been said a million times, but for good reason--this gathering is about so much more than just the amazing music from all over the world. It is about human nature, friendship, love, bonding, sharing, laughing, crying--you name it, it runs the gamut of human experience. It's a family reunion, anniversary, birthday, wedding and aural orgy all rolled into one!

Most sincere respect and admiration to everyone that attended, donated, helped behind the scenes, performed and made this event the best yet! On a personal note...I cannot express enough what an honor it was to make music with Ivan, Danny and Dane in The Atlantics tribute and Uros and Jovana in Threesome. It was easily some of the most rewarding musical experience I've ever had and I am so humbled and grateful to have been a part of it!

Giant group hug! Counting the days until next time...

PS....I'll say it again and again...there truly is no greater community and musical family than Surf Guitar 101!

SG101! Worship Cheers

Sniff sniff, no I'm not tearing up, I think I smelled you, uh yeah.


Jonpaul on lead bass on the Atlantics' Mirage. So much fun - thanks for the photos John!!!

Thanks to all for the kudos and reviews etc. Especially Ivan and Brian.
It was an amazing convention for sure.

I want to again thank all of the bands that came from so far away to play for us all. Without the want of you to want to come share your great music with us here,the event just would not be the same. Thanks to Jonpaul and Kristena for helping with the promo and web side of things. Thanks to Jonpaul for the Flyer image(right before he was to leave for Europe).
Thanks To Ran, the Quilter Brothers, and Dusty for the loan of gear and helping of set up and keeping everything running smooth all day.
Thanks to all of the sponsors for the event,especially Lee of Dionysus, Sean Of Double Crown, Steve of Reverb Junkies,Bob of Surf King Surfwear, Whorehay of Radio Free Bakersfield, Tavo of the Nocturne Brain pedals.
Art Of Musick records.
Thanks to Fender, Eastwood, and Quilter amps.
Thanks to Carol(mom surfing) for helping with the Member Jam.
Thanks to Ferenc in helping to get the Surf Coasters over here again.
Thanks to all of the bands and club owners that help the bands get club shows for before and after the convention.

Thanks to Maxx's mom Arin, Marie King, my Mom Louann, for running the front door. to my Dad for kinda watching the back door ;-).
Thanks to The Starting Gate for letting us use the venue.
Thanks to Lorenzo(surfer joe) for guidance and advice during the year.
And of course all of you that came to see the sg101 convention.
If it wasn't for you, it wouldn't be as big and good as its getting.
I only ask that you return to the convention next year, and help spread the word to others about the show.

If I forgot you in the Thank yous I'm sorry. This is really growing
and I am just in amazement of how big its getting.

Cheers, up next,
winter surf fest, Jan 31st
and next sg101 con. is Sat. Aug. 8th

Brian, thank you for running SG101 for us!


Yeaaaahhhh!!! Thank you Brian for doing this website SG101!!!
And of course thanks to btd for all!!!
Me and my Kilaueas were very happy that everything at last worked and we were able to play there! The convention was such a nice event! I did not expected so much positive response! Soooooo many nice people!!!
Of course it is not easy for bands to play overseas but it is always worth to do it! It is such a long flight… but yes, it is worth!
Thanks again to all who supported us!!! This is a great community!
We are happy to be a part of it.
Go Go!!!

Twang cheers!
