It was also great to meet outsides, and see again Karen of MBP, TikiTena, Jamie Machturtle and Linda Miller despite not being able to talk to them very much, which was a bummer.

What a bummer I didn't go down to the Pier for one more day of YOU my bro! It is always a thrill to see you and talk to you....all those years of history, you know....back in the Cowabunga days without all these newfangled message boards with all the pretty pitchurs Wink

"Jamie Machturtle" ~~~o/~~~

Eddie, I didn't get to see much of your playing that day because I was (wo)manning my CD table outside but, boy, I could hear ya! I was there for the other gig in Hermosa at Sangria when you played with the Elims so, it's all good.
I think every time I see you, I still thank you for playing A Surfer's Paradise, the concert for Don Murray back in 1996. All these years later, I am still so touched.
And your verdict on the Mermen? Laughing

Probably not the footage everybody really wants to see....but - Here's some video HBKahuna shot of The Aquasonics on Sunday - Thanks for shooting it Tim!

Sonichris- Great performance video! You guys are tight, and the tones are outstanding!

Sonichris....

You guys did great at the pier...enjoyed your show on the blip.tv video Tim did. Thanks Tim.

It was also good to hear you at the Convention....you really sounded good there too.
Hmmm....Didn't mean to scare you Chris...lol.

Hope to see you all again soon.

Warm Regards,

eddie

Eddie,

You stole the show Saturday. Maybe when your are 90 you will slow down enough to give the young guys a chance. Shocked

Hey Tim,

Thanks for the kind words. Coming from you I know it's from the heart and you have one of the biggest hearts there is. I had a great time!

Hope to see you soon,

PS Thank you too Jeff.....I know you would never say anything unless you truely felt it.

Dario my friend…..I am so proud to know you and play through your Amps. Words could never tell how it feels when I hear the sound. It is for me…no joke…A very spiritual feeling. You will never know how relaxed I feel when my sound is right. Thank you my friend for making that a reality. It is exactly like playing though my 62’ Showman Amps Leo gave me….and the tank is to die for.

Eddie,
Thank you (and others who have commented) for the kind words on the amps and for your talent.

Eddie, IMO it takes a really talented player who knows what good guitar tone needs to sound like (from back in the Fender days) and I'm fortunate what I do with my amps delivers for you.

 I'm also very lucky to have a dependable friend like you who is always eager and willing to help me and the Gomez biz be successful. It's comforting to know you believe wholeheartedly in what I'm doing and your actions prove that without exception.

  Thanks brother....d

I just wanted to thank Dave and others who played through the Gomez amps. You guys sounded awesome! Thanks to you all. Dman

I got a Cd, live recording from the Surf Guitar 101 Convention of The Detonators in the mail the other day, compliments of Steve from Chrome Oxide.
It turned out pretty decent. Worthy enough to share. If anyone is interested in a copy, I'll mail ya one.
Pm me or shoot me an email to scanman@adelphia.net.
Toodles for now.

not as big set players,
but if they want to come and be there to vend,
and maybe sit in during the Jam,
I'm fine with that.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

Be on your best behavior in Surf City. This guy tried to crash Tiki Dudes jam. He wasn't on the list.
