The Finale Party of the three day Tiki Kon festival in Portland Oregon will feature The Insanitizers surf guitar band. Performance is from 6 to 7pm. It is free, and no ticket or pass is needed (this is a change). The band will perform several songs from their upcoming new 22-song CD "Guitar Fun" including national award winner "Shootout" (Best Instrumental, July 2015, The Akademia).
The band was invited on the spot when the Tiki Kon organizer saw them perform in January. Come and hear why, and how energizing the music of 69 year old guitarists can be.
Venue: The Bamboo Craftsman, 2104 North Willis Blvd, Portland Oregon. This is outdoors.
The latest CD by the group is the fourteenth in my collection recorded in a period of 20 years. 10 tracks, playing time 28 minutes and 16 seconds.
From the first hearing I thought "Welcome to England", as the first two cuts sound very British like Shadows material.
Track 3 (Sand Dust) reminds me of the Atlantics (Australia), track 4 Tabitito Yo is a slow tune with a hit potential like "The Endless Summer" by The Sandals from 1964.
My favorite tune is Nr. 6 "Por Que" with some guitar licks imitating Dick Dale style from the sixties! Track 8 "Tug Of Wolves" is another fine example of the Surf Coasters fine playing of all instruments in an uptempo tune.
The other songs are very well played as well but i.m.o. nothing special.
When I was in Hollywood at the YMCA in March 1978 I watched on tv an interview with rock and roll hero Fats Domino. He was asked why he plays always his old hits. He replied "I am happy when I can make the audience happy and they do like the old tunes so I do play them for my audience to make them happy!"
The Surf Coasters have so much material done and so they can choose easily to make the audience happy (like I understand from the reviews about their gig at the SJSF 2016 in Livorno)!
Well done folks. Hope more to come!
