Surf Rock Radio + Fender/Hurley

I just have to share this most excellent news about Surf Rock Radios' major coup sponsor-wise.

Now I'm not all up on fashion sense and all Dapper Dan like Don Draper but apparently Fender has partnered with Hurley for a new clothing line and this luscious pairing is the newest sponsor for none other than Surf Rock Radio!

I am all about SRR and am tight with all things concerning Gnarly Mike (Mike75 on SG101) but this left me totally gobsmacked. Boy Howdy!

Sponsor? Like someone spending $$$ promoting merch on a surf station? Is that even legal?

Leave it Mr. Mike- string puller and wheeler dealer extraordinaire!

Lucky Joe's Tiki Room in Milwaukee to Close

I'm sad to report that Lucky Joe's Tiki Room in Milwaukee will be closing its doors this Saturday, October 30. While short lived, the bar was highly regarded in the Tiki scene. In fact, The Revomatics were the "unofficial" house band for the bar playing to enthusiastic capacity audiences. I'm told the owners accepted an offer on the building that was just too good to pass up. Hopefully, they'll reopen Lucky Joe's at another location in the near future.

We will definitely miss this venue. It was a great place to perform at! Good cocktails too!

You can read more about the bar's closing here.
