Reverb Nation : Live At The 2017 Surf Guitar 101 Convention CD
Surf instrumental music was established in the early 1960s.
Every summer for the last 10 years, the Surf Guitar 101 Convention has attracted a great many fans to Southern California for a three-day feast of surf music.
Each year many surf instrumental bands are invited from all over the country and the world to perform.
The 2017 event featured some of the best surf bands from Southern California, including Outerwave, The Volcanics, The Tequila Worms, Par Avion, and The Insect Surfers.
The rest of the USA was represented by The Mystery Men (Georgia), The Atomic Mosquitos (Washington DC), The Exotics (Wisconsin) and The Madeira (Indiana).
Since this music has become truly universal, the 2017 Surf Guitar 101 Convention also featured The Kilaueas and The El Caminos.
These two bands, from Germany and Japan, respectively, prove that surf instrumental music is not only loved on the other side of the planet, but the reverence that exists for the music's traditional sound and style transcends language and cultural barriers.
