Announcing Surf Nights on the Oregon Coast

Surf bands are always looking for one more friendly venue to share their love of the genre. A new bar on the Oregon Coast is the latest such venue. Aunt Mary's Toaster Bistro, in Lincoln City, has announced they would like to have a Surf Night once every other month starting in October. Any local Oregon bands or surf bands traveling through Oregon are welcome to play a Surf Night at Aunt Mary's. There is a possibility that Surf Nights at Aunt Mary's could become a monthly event. The key factor being how many surf bands are interested in playing on the coast.
If you are planning a tour that brings you through Oregon, or your an Oregon band and you are interested in playing at Aunt Mary's there are just a few things to remember:
  1. Surf Nights will be every other month
  2. Shows will be on either Thursday, Friday or Saturday nights
  3. Bands will be paid with ALL of the door money, bands well be fed and you get all the PBR you can drink!
Our band has played this venue a number of times, The owner is real nice, She is a wonderful cook and she advertises all her shows very well. It is a very unique venue and the crowds are always friendly. I am running Surf Nights for Aunt Mary's toaster Bistro. If you are interested in playing just get a hold of me here on surfguitar101 or on myspace under retroactivegammarays. I hope to set up a lot of shows for Aunt Mary's with you're help.

Eddie Bertrand Live at HBISM!!!

Surfin Sundays Concert June 10th from 1 to 3 pm
Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum
411 Olive Ave Huntington Beach, CA 92648
SoundWaves & 60's Guest Legend Eddie Bertrand (The Belairs, Eddie & The Showmen)

After a lengthy hiatus venturing into various types of music Eddie Bertrand has decided to make a comeback to his old favorite surf music scene.  He told me on the phone the other day his friends have been bugging him to pick his old guitar and get back to playing the music that made him popular. Eddie was friends with the late SoundWaves drummer Jim Rudnick who passed away very recently after losing his battle with cancer.  The SoundWaves have been after him to play with them at the museum and he finally agreed.  He was most humble when I told him not a Surfin Sundays gig goes by that he isn't mentioned or a couple of his songs played. He didn't think anyone even remembered him let alone play the songs such as "Squad Car" & "Mr. Rebel" that he created and made popular.  Maybe some of you know but most of us don't that the siren on "Squad Car" was originally invented on the mouthpiece of a saxophone, not the guitar.  He got interested in playing with the SoundWaves because he and Jim were close friends who clicked together like bread and butter.

HBISM has the exclusive on Eddie's grand comeback during his special legendary guest performance with the SoundWaves. We at HBISM are STOKED about Eddie's comeback and invite you to join us in celebration of his success and pay respects to Jim while enjoying great music and it's all free. Eddie is a great guy and we wish him well.
