If you're unable to attend- please consider 'support' in some form whether purchasing a 'comemorative' T-shirt, program &/or post DVD SET. More details & questions answered by direct e-mail: TABALT11@YAHOO.COM!
I like to say this often- "It only takes attending (1) Ventures fan fest to get hooked for many more!"
After 2 cancelations due to Covid 19, we finally can announce a new date for Aloha Fest 5! Saturday march 12, 2022! Over the past years Aloha Fest has grown to a steady gathering of surf music fans and it is the biggest indoor (winter) surf festival of Europe!
As always the festival is organized and curated by Aloha Sluts guitar player and concert photographer Arny Raedts (aka ArnyZona). We are lucky to have a lot of support from one of the best concert halls in the Netherlands, for a ‘niche’ genre like surf music. A big thank you to Grenswerk! Like previous editions we have non-stop live music on 2 stages. And we are proud to announce that we can welcome The Tremolo Beer Gut as the headliner this year. Due to popular demand, because Grenswerk concert visitors voted them in to the top 10 of all time greatest live bands (Aloha Fest 2).
So what else is new? Nothing! We still have an on site market, with a record store, thanx to Eddy Lucca (https://surfinsbackagain.shop/). Due to the Covid 19 restrictions we do not know if we can have our regular barbershop and plans for a tattoo parlor and or massage shop are in the closet again
This edition’s line up is (in chronicle order):
Black Django’s (NL, this trio does the Doors version of the Ventures so well, they don’t need a bass player!)
Aloha Sluts (NL, the Dutch answer to Link Wray, only the guitar player is a bit uglier)
The Surfbeat Club (NL & B, traditional reverb drenched surf from a bunch of rocknroll outlaws)
Los Venturas (B, gogo…. Ehm gogo…. Yes…. gogo and shake your booty!)
Thee Andrew Surfers (B, legendary trio that is half of Fifty Foot Combo. They don’t play that much any more, so this is some kind of reunion)
The Tremelo Beer Gut (DK, doing an exclusive stop over show on their way to SXSW, Austin. Only that Yebo can visit his favorite wine bar in Venlo on his birthday. Please don’t tell him that Bert, the bar owner, has him on the ‘no entrance’ list! Thanx a lot Martin!)
For new visitors: Venlo is a town on the border of Germany and the Netherlands. There are several airports in less than an hour away (Dusseldorf, Eindhoven, Weeze, Maastricht-Aachen, Bonn-Cologne). The venue Grenswerk, is located in the historic center of Venlo, on the banks of the river Meuse. There are several hotels (Hotel Puur, a small boutique hotel, is the closest and cheapest) in 10 minutes walking distance. Please note that parking in Venlo can be expensive, but most hotels offer free parking spaces. Oh and then there is Sounds Record Store, only a 5 minute walk from the venue. The biggest independent record store in the Netherlands and the favorite of Lorenzo (Surfer Joe) and JonPaul Balak. They have a great little restaurant in the back, with a nice lunch menu too!

For 2020, the Royal Aces band is excited to announce that we have once again been scheduled to play at every Golden Super Cruise Car Show, in Golden, Colorado. If any SG101 members are from Colorado, or just traveling through, feel free to stop by! The shows take place on the first Saturday of every month, from May through October, in the big King Sooper's parking lot on South Golden Road, from 3 to 6 pm.
A great way to get 2020 rollin. We have a great show coming at you February 7th at Fox & Goose in Sacramento, CA! It is sure to be a great night of tunes.
OK, it's not Impeachment talk or the World Series, but the Shamen are nonetheless pleased to announce that, weather and fires permitting, their music will be on KQBM, Blue Mountain Radio, 90.7 FM. A special shout out and big thanks to DJ James Fox. If the station doesn't burn down, the Lost Planet Shamen will be making a little surfy noise on Tuesday, November 5th, between 10-12 AM. You can also listen online - https://www.kqbm.org/. Not a major victory, but another step forward in the march to bring reverb to the people!
