Marty Klenz, known as Baja Marty to many of us, has been very ill. Several months ago, he went to the doctor with severe pain in his side. Doctors have discovered many complications, the most frightening of them, cancer. The news is overwhelming for Marty and his family; disheartening for the surf community. Marty is currently treating Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma with chemotherapy. Because of his current condition, Marty cannot work. With utilities and other expenses, medical bills are an unwelcome, but necessary evil in the mix. In an effort to help Marty during these critical times, we have put together this event to raise funds for "Baja" Marty. For those who do not know Marty, he has been a long-time surf music fanatic. Given the name "Baja" Marty from his favorite tune recorded by the Astronauts (written by Lee Hazlewood), many people in the community know and love him. Please help!
A benefit show is planned on Saturday, October 8, 11:00am - 7:00pm at The Starting Gate, 5052 Katella Avenue, Los Alamitos, CA.
Here is the lineup:
Dick Dale and son Jimmy Dale
Special guests The Eliminators
Dick Dale, "The King of the Surf Guitar," brings his spirited sound to the Catalina Casino. Dale is a legendary performer who invented the surf guitar sound and continues as its chief ambassador to this day. His many hits include "Miserlou," the song that electrified Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.
Dale's son Jimmy Dale joins him on stage for a performance of dueling Fender guitars. Surf rock favorites The Eliminators open the show.
Saturday, July 2, 7:30 pm. All ages are welcome.
The Eliminators played for the Dewey Weber benefit @ Sangria in Hermosa Beach. Here is their live version of 'E5'.
Eddie Bertrand (Belairs, Eddie & The Showmen) performs "Lanky Bones" with the Eliminators backing up. This was taped live at the 1st SG101 Convention in 2008. Eddie Bertrand-lead guitar, Bill Swanson-saxaphone, John Benton-guitar, Joe Kurkowski-guitar, Frank Hughes-bass, Doug Harlow-drums. Sound recorded by Cr2O.
