- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
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!
The fourth edition! So we can call it almost a tradition to start of the new year at Grenswerk in Venlo, the Netherlands. Here you can see 6 of the best surf bands Europe has to offer, on 2 stages. Also a market, with tiki-stuff, clothing, CD's and vinyl, a barbershop and lots more!
Bradipos IV (Napoli, I)
Italy’s oldest surfband has been one of Europes best and spectacular surf bands since 23 years! And one of the nicest guys to work with. They had to cancel their show at Aloha Fest 3, but promised to be back for edition 4! And here they are, come and meet your new best friends!
Bang! Mustang (Leipzig, D)
One of the most dynamic trio’s in the international surfscene. Bang! Mustang are from Leipzig, Germany, but when you listen to their two albums, you hear South-American rhythms, melodic surf punk and more. These guys know how to work an audience and afterwards you will need some new dance shoes!
Arno de Cea & The Clockwork Wizards (Bordeaux, F)
Remember Man or Astroman? These French guys will help you forget them. Brutal surf they call it them selves, but there are some great tunes too! They have a stage show that will leave everybody breathless, with acrobatic guitar antics and some ADHD on speed dance moves!
Humanga Danga (Gent, B)
The Belgium city of Gent is rivaling California as the hotspot of original surfmusic. Bands like Fifty Foot Combo and, Akulas already played Grenswerk. Newcomers Humanga Danga have stirted up the international surfscene with their debut album. Even on Surfguitar101, the biggest surfforum on the net, they are celebrated as the new best thing happening to surfmusic!
Aloha Sluts (Venlo, NL)
After 5 years, the previous version and most successful version of Aloha Sluts broke up. But now it is time for version 4.0! An all Venlo line up, with some new songs and updated versions of old Aloha Sluts classics. Yep, they are still playing ‘Gaywatch’, a top 3 hit on the Australian Rock Charts for 12 weeks, with 3 weeks at number one!
Martini Hulks (Bonn, D)
Traditional we start the evening with a German band that combines surfmusic with ‘50s nightclub music. They combine reverb guitars with raunchy saxophones. The ideal music to start drinking to get in the mood… but don’t drink too much, you want to dance to the next 5 bands too!

2019 started with the announce one of the most ambitious Brazilian surf music releases. Reverb Brasil Records and Orleone Records join forces to release Brazilian Tsunami, a three CD box set with 63 Brazilian surf bands.
Brazilian surf scene was always known for its activity and creativity, with a lot of bands from all over the country and different interpretations of the style, with influences that go from Brazilian music to metal, punk, latin and new wave, but never missing the main point of surf music: fun music to dance to.
The digital release took place during January. The box set was released in early February and release parties took place in a lot of cities around the country.
Now we are proud to announce the first edition of Brazilian Tsunami Festival, in São Paulo. 16 of the bands appearing on the compilation share the stage at Cervejaria Tarantino in two days of Brazilian surf music celebration. We will also have an album artwork exhibit by Henrique San, the man behind the box set artwork, vintage instruments exhibit, food trucks, record vendors, brewery tours and a lot more.
