As announced at the SG101 Convention this summer, Surfer Joe will open a bar & diner in Livorno, Italy, dedicated to surf music and fun. The location is on the sea, Terrazza Mascagni for those of you who had the opportunity to come to Livorno before and have visited the town. We have been working extremely hard for more than 6 months to get this location that we consider very cool and unique.
Tune in to the Shrunken Head Lounge this Sunday Oct 9 8-9pm for a cool new show.

Marty Klenz, known as Baja Marty to many of us, has been very ill. Several months ago, he went to the doctor with severe pain in his side. Doctors have discovered many complications, the most frightening of them, cancer. The news is overwhelming for Marty and his family; disheartening for the surf community. Marty is currently treating Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma with chemotherapy. Because of his current condition, Marty cannot work. With utilities and other expenses, medical bills are an unwelcome, but necessary evil in the mix. In an effort to help Marty during these critical times, we have put together this event to raise funds for "Baja" Marty. For those who do not know Marty, he has been a long-time surf music fanatic. Given the name "Baja" Marty from his favorite tune recorded by the Astronauts (written by Lee Hazlewood), many people in the community know and love him. Please help!
A benefit show is planned on Saturday, October 8, 11:00am - 7:00pm at The Starting Gate, 5052 Katella Avenue, Los Alamitos, CA.
Here is the lineup:
I am pleased to announce the SurfGuitar101 2011 MP3 Compilation! Our 7th one! Just like before, this is a way for members to share music, recording tips, and to just have fun. The main emphasis is fun, so please send in an entry no matter what your skill level is. Here are the rules:
I have created an Official 2011 MP3 Compilation Forum Thread. Please use that thread to discuss the compilation and to get information on how to submit an mp3. Please use that thread if you'd like to find a fellow member to work with on the project. With the magic of digital recording and the internet, remote collaborations are possible. Make your own virtual surf band! Let the comp begin!
Please check out our prior compilations if you haven't seen them already: 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010.
With the departure of esteemed multi-instrumentalist Marty Tippens (who will not be playing live until his Ph.D is completed), the Insect Surfers (Planet Earth's Longest-Running Modern Surf Band) are now on the lookout for a second guitarist. Minimum daily requirements are a sense of energy, humor, and a modicum of instrumental competency. If you're reading this than hopefully you've heard of us or have an idea of what we sound like. influences range from Link Wray, Dick Dale and Davie Allan to Quicksilver and Television. Or from The Ventures and The Belairs to The Ramones, Iggy, and B52s. If you're a surf/instro guitarist (or know somebody who sounds like one) please feel free to send an email to email@example.com . We're based in the Los Angeles area. Mahalo !
