- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
Parents and Grandparents who love surf music...
What if there was a fun and interactive way you could introduce the kids to other awesome forms of music like SURF MUSIC, rockabilly, baroque, reggae, mariachi, black gospel, folk, hawaiian, and many more styles...?
The Surfaris are pleased to announce their participation in the Band Together online music educational program. This past August, Bob Berryhill and his family band (The Surfaris) gave interviews to BT on how fun it is to learn and to perform surf music together as a family. The Surfaris recently sat down with BT creators Steve Rogers and Renea Hetzer as they shared their vision to introduce surf music to the next generation in a fun, interactive way.
Band Together has just released their first online digital album/program called "Vibrations" which features the music and interviews from The Surfaris. Vibrations does an excellent job interactively showing the kids what "surf music" is, who the major players were, and how to play their own surf music. There are short videos, photos and stories on how to get your kids appreciating and playing surf music. There are also great stories describing all the instruments, equipment needed to play surf music. There is even online surf guitar lessons to get you started!
This program is ideal for homeschooling families or parents/grandparents interested in giving their children extra music education. For more info on Band Together and how to get your kids into this months Vibrations program go to: http://bandtogether.rocks/

Friends and guitar music fans:
I am happy to tell you that I have a new band ‹ Paul Johnson & Friends ‹ and that this new band is about to make its DEBUT PERFORMANCE this coming weekend at the COFFEE GALLERY BACKSTAGE in ALTADENA.
I have hand-picked some of the top players from within the surf-instro genre to work with me at this endeavor of love. Accompanying me on the CGB stage for our first public performance will be:
As Ron & Matt are both adept at playing both the guitar and the bass, the plan here is to have them trade off between the two instruments, thus lending greater variety to guitar sounds within the band. The group's repertoire will include all the usual surf and rock-instrumental classics, as well as my own catalog of original tunes. The goal for Paul Johnson & Friends is to move the genre forward with new ideas for the music, while remaining faithful to the original style that defines the surf-instrumental genre.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 7 PM
THE COFFEE GALLERY BACKSTAGE
2029 LAKE STREET, ALTADENA (about 2 miles north of the 210 Fwy)
You should make reservations NOW ‹ shows here often sell out in advance; there are only 50 seats available in this intimate venue... but every seat is up close and personal and the sound is great too, making the CGB the IDEAL venue for what we do!
