- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
The fourth edition! So we can call it almost a tradition to start of the new year at Grenswerk in Venlo, the Netherlands. Here you can see 6 of the best surf bands Europe has to offer, on 2 stages. Also a market, with tiki-stuff, clothing, CD's and vinyl, a barbershop and lots more!
Bradipos IV (Napoli, I)
Italy’s oldest surfband has been one of Europes best and spectacular surf bands since 23 years! And one of the nicest guys to work with. They had to cancel their show at Aloha Fest 3, but promised to be back for edition 4! And here they are, come and meet your new best friends!
Bang! Mustang (Leipzig, D)
One of the most dynamic trio’s in the international surfscene. Bang! Mustang are from Leipzig, Germany, but when you listen to their two albums, you hear South-American rhythms, melodic surf punk and more. These guys know how to work an audience and afterwards you will need some new dance shoes!
Arno de Cea & The Clockwork Wizards (Bordeaux, F)
Remember Man or Astroman? These French guys will help you forget them. Brutal surf they call it them selves, but there are some great tunes too! They have a stage show that will leave everybody breathless, with acrobatic guitar antics and some ADHD on speed dance moves!
Humanga Danga (Gent, B)
The Belgium city of Gent is rivaling California as the hotspot of original surfmusic. Bands like Fifty Foot Combo and, Akulas already played Grenswerk. Newcomers Humanga Danga have stirted up the international surfscene with their debut album. Even on Surfguitar101, the biggest surfforum on the net, they are celebrated as the new best thing happening to surfmusic!
Aloha Sluts (Venlo, NL)
After 5 years, the previous version and most successful version of Aloha Sluts broke up. But now it is time for version 4.0! An all Venlo line up, with some new songs and updated versions of old Aloha Sluts classics. Yep, they are still playing ‘Gaywatch’, a top 3 hit on the Australian Rock Charts for 12 weeks, with 3 weeks at number one!
Martini Hulks (Bonn, D)
Traditional we start the evening with a German band that combines surfmusic with ‘50s nightclub music. They combine reverb guitars with raunchy saxophones. The ideal music to start drinking to get in the mood… but don’t drink too much, you want to dance to the next 5 bands too!
