- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
Started in 2000 by The Volanics Benny Hammond and The Lively Ones Las Vegas fill-in guy Skater j, the Vista IV started as a trad instro cover band but went on to develop a fringe regional southwest spin on surf they tagged "smooth surf, progressives surf, and traditional surf music" before breaking up in 2010. Beach Blanket Productions has released the bands final bunch of songs as "The Final Wave" available in cd and as downloads. This along with the early twin guitars of Benny Hammond and Skater j rendering of classic surf tunes in 2000's "Surf Music Undertow" have been re-released as free downloads from the official band site thevistaiv.com.
