Classic Board Surf Video

Jersey Shore Surfrider Foundation held its Manaquan Classic Longboard contest. It was a pre-1967 longboard contest with no leashes and no whining.  This was a celebration of Eastern surf and beach culture.  The waves were rather small but the stoke was high.  At noon, The Fin-Dicators played a hour set on the beach sand just 20 yards from the oceans edge.  Except for a few choice originals, most of the songs  were as old as the boards themselves.   Thanks to Dick B.  from The Aquatudes for filling in on drums and knowing all the songs!

Here is a link to the video, especially the clown division of the contest.

Neptunes Disk Out NOW!!!!!

Davy Jones' House Band Is now available!


“The Neptunes are one of my favorite instrumental bands around today.”    Eddie Angel - Los Straitjackets

How would you describe Neptunes sound? The Neptunes are considered a surf band by many, but it's a surf band that’s light on the reverb, and delivers a meaner more revved sound that’s closer to good ol' instrumental rock and roll.

Over the years the Neptunes made a name for themselves by playing double necked guitars, even Guitar Player Magazine and Fretboard Journal devoted a little ink to the bands double-double set-up. As of recently a second guitar, a saxophone and a full-time bassist have been enlisted, and a new version of the band has taken form. While the Neptunes don’t rule out double-necks in the near future, for now they will only use one set of hands at a time.

This album represents a nine year stretch between disks, and a lot of things have changed. Basically,  it’s a band of guys who like bad-assed tones played through the equipment of the early 60's. That pretty much describes the Neptunes sound. See what you think! We hope you enjoy, Davy Jones’ House Band.
