Nokie Edwards is the lead guitarist for the most successful instrumental
group in musical history: THE VENTURES. He is in the Rock and Roll
Hall Of Fame, he is a Grammy winner, and has sold over 100 million records in his long career. Some of the Ventures’ big hits are “Walk Don’t Run,” “Perfidia,” “Hawaii 5-0,” “Slaughter On 10th Ave.,” “Batman Theme,” and “Apache” -- and the list goes on and on. http://www.nokieedwards.com/
VENTURESMANIA is a Ventures tribute band formed by some of the
best surf musicians of the modern era. The band formed exclusively to back Nokie Edwards in a style that echoes the classic 1960’s sound of the Ventures. Venturesmania is made up of: Deke Dickerson on guitar (Untamed Youth, Dave & Deke Combo, Go-Nuts, Deke Dickerson & the Ecco-Fonics), Garrett Immel, guitar (The Ghastly Ones), Mel Bergmann, bass (The Phantom Surfers, Go-Nuts), and Chris Sprague (Chris Sprague & his 18 Wheelers, Deke Dickerson & the Ecco-Fonics). Venturesmania plays Mosrite guitars exclusively.
DEKE DICKERSON & THE ECCO-FONICS are one of America’s premier roots and rockabilly bands. Deke has been touring the globe and making records for many years. Recent successes include his very own signature Hallmark “Deke Dickerson Model” guitar, and he has also provided guitar music and commentary for Bob Dylan’s successful radio show “Theme
Time Radio Hour.” http://www.myspace.com/dekedickerson
POLLO DEL MAR is one of the most successful bands of surf music’s “Third Wave,” featuring a combo sound that mixes the classic twang of reverb soaked Fender guitars with layers of atmospheric feedback and a powerhouse rhythm section. http://www.pollodelmar.com/
