The Twang-O-Matics (Halden, Norway)

The Neptunas (Los Angeles-California, USA)

The Fathoms (Boston-Massachusetts, USA)

Biography (From Facebook page)

“The Fathoms” is veteran Boston-native guitarist-composer Frankie Blandino’s Americana multi-piece band. The Fathoms perform a blend of Frankie’s clever guitar-oriented originals which cover a number of styles of instrumental music with hints of film-score compositions, guitar ‘hits’, kinky humorous numbers, grinding Wray-like tunes, surf/spy-type genres and full-bore late 50’s/early 60’s rockers, all infused with the inimitable “Frankie” personality on guitar.

If I said “Ventures”, “The Shadows”, “Duane Eddy”, “Spaghetti Westerns”, “Bo Diddley”, “Chuck Berry”.. you should get the picture! The Fathoms also crank out those styles on their various covers with masterful results. They usually show up in a 4 piece format, but it might be a trio, a 5 piece or even a duo on occasion.

Marvels are currently based in Berlin. The founders, the delirious guitarists Alex Antonio (Argentina) and Marisol Yolanda (Chile), launched the band in the far east of Germany in the heart of post-Wall Saxony in 2002. In Leipzig Los Marvels created a scene faithful to the cavernous sound of guitars reverberating at high velocity amid percussion, hot and wild rhythms. They soon found the perfect groove as an instrumental quartet , getting audiences on their feet and raising them to the pitch of ecstasy, hypnotized by the warm, mysterious and brilliant sound they produce. Right from the start they left their own mark in the vast world of rock & roll, Instro and Surf in their different periods.

Jaguar & The Savanas (Catania, Sicily)

Biography (From Facebook page)

Probably the most southerly surf band in Europe. Born in Catania in the most ulterior spaces of the intellect of the guitarist finally finds light at the end of summer of 2004.
Several were the line-ups, but only Luigi the first and professional drummer has managed to give a sound front and tight rhythms typical of the surf bands. The musical references are the classic American classics such as Ventures, Dick Dale, Lively Ones, Jon & The Nightriders, but also the European instrumental, Shadows, Mustangs, Pipeline 61, Jaguars and why not even that coming from the Orient, Yuzo Kayama and Royal Fingers, with a nod to spaghetti western, sci-fi and strip-tease music.

Guitar Zup (Michigan, USA)

" SURF ZUP is on a mission to bring back the great guitar instrumental hits from the 60's. The musical genre known by many, is generally referred to as "Surf Music". The formula is simple but powerful. Guitars, drums, catchy beats, great melodies, and plenty of reverb results in songs that are familiar to many "
