- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
Lyric & Lecture, an Illinois-based educational and musical talent agency and event producer, announces the first annual Third Coast Surf Fest to take place at the Waukegan Harbor & Marina on Saturday, July 9, 2022. This one-day music festival will showcase regional and national bands that perform Surf Rock as well as British Invasion, American Rockabilly and Garage Rock music.
“Over the past couple of years, my production partner Sandra Reese and I have discovered an amazing number of talented musicians who rock out intense surf guitar rhythms and other extremely danceable music that invokes the early 1960s vibe and culture,” says Lynette Foss, founder of Lyric & Lecture. “We wanted to showcase the vast talent that the Midwest’s Third Coast has to offer while helping the environment in some way. Producing a surf music festival benefiting Alliance for the Great Lakes seemed like the perfect way to do that.”
“The Alliance for the Great Lakes is thrilled to be a beneficiary of the Third Coast Surf Fest 2022. The Great Lakes are our region’s most precious resource and we applaud the fest’s organizers for raising awareness about the need to protect the lakes and celebrating all that we love about them,” said Alliance for the Great Lakes President & CEO Joel Brammeier.
The festival’s venue, Waukegan Harbor & Marina, offers a beautiful lakefront marina that includes a promenade, public park, yacht club, music stage, nearby public beach and slips to accommodate craft of any size. The Marina is owned by the Waukegan, Illinois Port District. Concerts will take place on the stage at Green Town on the Rocks, a venue located within the Harbor property. In addition, the Waukegan Yacht Club is transforming itself into a Tiki Bar with Tiki market and vintage car owners will be able to display their vehicles in the parking lot adjacent to the Yacht Club.

Daddy-O Grande, guitarist for Los Straitjackets, has tablature for sale on his website:
"High Quality sheet music with Guitar Tablature available now as a PDF download. I transcribed and wrote this tablature myself, so I can absolutely guarantee it's accuracy. This is EXACTLY the way I play these songs on my solo records, as well as with Los Straitjackets.
Each song comes as a separate piece of printable sheet music, with it's own cover graphic, a small anecdote about each song and many playing tips."
Damian Fanelli (Mr. Neutron) is doing a great job as the editor of the online version of Guitar World magazine. Now, here's the first GuitarWorld.com column by Daddy-O Grande of Los Straitjackets. Daddy-O explains the history of his classic song Calhoun Surf, and it even includes tablature. Daddy-O did the tabs himself, so you know it's correct!
