The 9th Annual SurfGuitar101 Convention!

Saturday, August 13, 2016, Noon to Midnight
The 9th Annual Surf Guitar 101 Convention
Alpine Village
833 W. Torrance Blvd.
Torrance, CA 90502

For the 9th year in a row, the global Surf guitar community will focus its attention on its Southern California birthplace as the Surf Guitar 101 Convention takes over Alpine Village on Saturday, August 13, 2016. What began as a fairly intimate gathering of die-hard enthusiasts and members of the Internet's number one resource for all things Surf guitar, surfguitar101.com, has blossomed into the most important event of its kind in the USA.

The 12 hour affair, which runs from Noon to Midnight, will feature one of the greatest lineups of modern Surf instrumental bands from around the globe. This year’s performers include Crazy Aces from Nashville, TN; The Secret Samurai from San Diego, CA; Kelp from Santa Barbara, CA; Tikiyaki 5-0 from Los Angeles, CA; George Tomsco of the legendary group The Fireballs from New Mexico; a historic reunion of the Northern California supergroup The Mach IV and the reunion and 20th anniversary celebration of Washington D.C.'s highly influential Space Cossacks. Representing the international contingent will be the return of Italy's Bradipos IV, the highly anticipated appearance of Russia's masters of horror-Surf, The Messer Chups and the American debut of Dutch trailblazers The Phantom Four, featuring not only Phantom Frank from the legendary Treble Spankers, but very special guest guitarist John Blair, Surf music historian and revival pioneer of Jon & The Nightriders.

In addition to the 10 main performances, there will be an extended live set of music featuring some extremely special guests from the original 60's era bands, an all-star tribute to The Original Surfaris, an exclusive performance by local favorites The Hot Rod Trio demonstrating products by Nocturne, and a generous all-day raffle of sponsorship products that includes prizes ranging from CDs, DVDs, T-Shirts, guitar pedals by Nocturne, guitar and bass accessories from D'Addario, an amplifier by Quilter, a guitar and bass from Fender and a very special exclusive Eastwood Senn Model One guitar!

Alpine Village, the expansive new all-ages venue for the convention, features top-notch international cuisine and beverages, a deli and marketplace, ample parking and spacious areas where vendors from some of the leading Surf instrumental record companies and collectible dealers will gather to sell their wares.
