- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
From the website:
"...75 minutes of tips and lessons in The Art of Surf Drumming™ from four great drummers, plus the full-length documentary film A Drummers Guide to Surf Drumming. The project is dedicated to the new torchbearers that are out there every night pushing the boundaries of instrumental surf music and features talents of some of my favorite Musicians: Tracy and I are joined by drummers Lee Kixx (from the cutting-edge Reventlos) and the incomparable Dusty Watson (of Dick Dale and Slacktone). The all-star live band features classic performances from Paul Johnson, Dave Wronski of Slacktone and Dick Dale bassist Ron Eglit."

|Home recording and surf music enthusiasts ... here's a cool new retro-website made just for you:
Steve's Springy Surf Drums
There are four different packs for $4.99-$9.99 that offer reverb/non-reverb loops in Apple/AIFF formats, so that both Mac and PC users can create some fun surf songs at home. If you don't have access to a real drummer or quality surf drum loops, then these are perfect for you. Or even if you're a drummer, in a band with a drummer, or have access to a studio and drummer ... these loops are still great to have on hand to build everything from demo songs or complete albums.
Spring on over!
I was just informed that THE TRASHMEN/THE CHANTAYS Proposal was not accepted, at the Venue in Southern California. All of us on the Management Team are disappointed of course, but this will not deter us. I can speak for all of us involved, that we totally believe that this package show---was one of the best Entertainment Events around.
If any of you have "Contacts" that you think might help get this Show off the ground, let me know. I will then pass on the information to the others.
Thanks for all your support.

The Mighty Surf Lords have been out making new friends this past week.
One is local DJ Max Volume for KOZZ Radio. Max has taken me under his wing, and has been promoting our new album on this local classic rock station.
Max LOVES surf music, and is really helping to spread the word around Reno, Carson, and Tahoe.
Then yesterday we were apporoached by Buzz, who did a small interview and has made our music available, anytime, at www.RenoRadiocast.com
There are many people in this area who are discovering surf music, and they are really diggin' it! This is good news for all surf bands!
