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.
