The Surfaris Partner With "Band Together" For Surf Music Education


Parents and Grandparents who love surf music...

What if there was a fun and interactive way you could introduce the kids to other awesome forms of music like SURF MUSIC, rockabilly, baroque, reggae, mariachi, black gospel, folk, hawaiian, and many more styles...?

The Surfaris are pleased to announce their participation in the Band Together online music educational program. This past August, Bob Berryhill and his family band (The Surfaris) gave interviews to BT on how fun it is to learn and to perform surf music together as a family. The Surfaris recently sat down with BT creators Steve Rogers and Renea Hetzer as they shared their vision to introduce surf music to the next generation in a fun, interactive way.

Band Together has just released their first online digital album/program called "Vibrations" which features the music and interviews from The Surfaris. Vibrations does an excellent job interactively showing the kids what "surf music" is, who the major players were, and how to play their own surf music. There are short videos, photos and stories on how to get your kids appreciating and playing surf music. There are also great stories describing all the instruments, equipment needed to play surf music. There is even online surf guitar lessons to get you started!

This program is ideal for homeschooling families or parents/grandparents interested in giving their children extra music education. For more info on Band Together and how to get your kids into this months Vibrations program go to:
