- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
West Hawaii Today announced on July 8, 2011 that the Solar Wind Surf Band was given the "Best Music" award in this years Fourth of July Parade, as well as the "Third Place Award" in the Float category for non-profit groups. There were 70 units entered in this years parade.
The band was on a flat-bed truck, driven by Kevin Trager and we also had a Front Car, a 1990 Blue Corvette Convertible, with owner-driver Roger Peterson at the wheel, with his favorite Surfer Girl waving to crowd. There was one White and one Red Longboard sticking almost straight up, behind the bucket seats. Also, we had Martin Ewen, Stilt-walker walking and dancing to our music, along side and all around the truck. We also use a huge bubble machine, too. it must have been quite a site. Martin got "Second Place" in the Marching category as well.
