'Legends of Surf Music' concert to premiere in Vista Calif. on October 25

'Legends of Surf Music' concert to premiere in Vista Calif. on October 25, 2014 at the Moonlight Amphitheatre.

Stars and Stripes Events, a concert production company located in Escondido, Calif., is promoting a surf rock concert with former members of eight of the best known famous surf rock bands of the sixties. The promoter will donate 10 percent of ticket sales directly to Wounded Warrior Homes also located in Vista Calif. The concert is at the Moonlight Amphitheatre in Vista on October 25.

The concert line-up of performers will include former members of the Hondells, Castells, Marketts and the Routers; all performing for the first time in 50 years with several original members.

Also performing are former and original members of the Beach Boys, Surfaris, Jan & Dean, Chantays, Belairs and Dick Dale & the Del Tones.

These surf bands are attributed with such songs as "Surfin USA," "Wipeout," "Little Deuce Coupe," "Little Honda," "Surfer Joe," "Pipeline," "Out of Limits," "Misirlou," "Let's Go Trippin," "Little Old Lady From Pasadena," "Dead Mans' Curve," "Mr. Moto," and dozens more.

John Jerd, the President of Stars and Stripes Events, said, "This concert will make music history because the audience hasn't seen some of these groups in decades, and never all these famous band members in one concert."

The "Legends of Surf Music" concert will be held at the Moonlight Amphitheatre at 1200 Vale Terrace Drive Vista, CA 92084, on October 25, 2014.

Stars and Stripes Events, and Jerd & DiMaggio Productions of Escondido California, headed up by John Jerd, produce and promote concerts primarily for 501(c)3 non-profit organizations; especially where the non-profit serves our military heroes.

The Routers and the Marketts still keep on rockin'

Just when you thought they were through, the Marketts just released a new album and the Routers are getting ready to release their second album of the year, entitled "Live At The Hollywood Bowl - The Routers" recorded live in 1963, the quality of the sound isn't that great but then they didn't have the technology that we have today. 

Both bands were formed by Mike Gordon and Gordon wrote the Marketts first hit, "Surfer's Stomp" which sold half a million copies.  Gordon then wrote "Out Of Limits" which sold over a million copies and earned him his 2nd BMI Award for instrumental of the year.

The Routers also had a smash hit with the hand-clapping instrumental called, "Let's Go" which can still be heard at sports events and used in many movies and television shows.  The Marketts "Out of Limits" was used in Pulp Fiction and many other movies.
