Guitar Legend (formerly identified as King Of The Surf Guitar) returns within a mile of his old stomping grounds the Riverside Armory to perform at Alex Idzardi's three day Rhythm Collision Music Festival & Car Show held at the Marriott Hotel, 3500 Market Street in downtown Riverside, CA.

The show is almost sold out so get your tickets now by calling (714) 448-9325. We had 475 tickets to sell two weeks ago before Dick came on board. We are now down to 175 tickets and we just added Dick, so get your reservations in now.

There will be a dozen other bands performing various music tastes during the three day festival. If you like boogie woogie, then Boogie Woogie Queen Vicky Tafoya & Her Big Beat, boogie woogie piano great Neil Morrow will keep your feet moving on the dance floor.

If you prefer rockabilly, then 60's rockabilly bands Rockin' Rebels, the Sun Demons, the Rayford Bro's will be on hand playing tunes from the late fifties, around the birth of rock n roll.

If you like your music blue, then the Mighty Mojo Prophets as well as Abby Girl will give you a doze of their style of blues.

If you like R&B, then the Moonliners will be on hand playing traditional rhythm n blues.

If you like your R&B with a 40's big band sound but drenched with a 60's So Cal twist, then 60's recording artists Joey & His Showmen will be on hand playing tunes as they did on the river banks of the Arizona side of the Colorado River in 1962.

There will be dance contests, a vintage car show, record hops, grub, vendor and guitar giveaways.

I spent the weekend with Dick and albeit he has a plethora of major physical debilitating ailments, he still has some energy left in the can.

Because the show is from his old stomping grounds in Riverside where he started the surf music genre, I've been encouraging him to play the Del Tone material from that time (1961-1962) rather than Hightone era post 1992, but, as anyone who knows Dick, he will do what he wants to.

This is going to be a great show, akin to what a DD show was like in 62, so, get there if you can. A limited amount of tickets are available. Send me a message at if you have any questions.

Have a wonderful time, everyone! Wish I were there.

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

Man my hometown is getting some surf action! I hope someone posts pictures. Looks like it's going to be a real hootenanny except with plenty of reverb!

Dick Dale's first instrumental that was released when he was focusing on his rockabilly roots, long before his music gave birth to the surf instrumental genre in mid 1962.

But but but, he says he started playing surf in 55 now.

Hello everyone. I'm new to this site, but a long time Surf Music fan. As the organizer and promoter of The Rhythm Collision, I am very proud to have the King Of Surf Guitar perform with his band. Hope to see many of you at the event! Axle

Where do you launch your Doo?

Do you ever launch south of Parker Dam?

My Showman did a concert at Sundance last weekend and Dick came by for support.
