the band that performed after OUTERWAVE was VenturesMania -- they did a brief set

I shot 2 videos of VenturesMania, and they are up and running on my YouTube page

here are the songs / direct links:

"GINZA LIGHTS"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJclS5lEobs

"PEDAL PUSHER"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gx9ldpJs8_s

VenturesMania are: Deke Dickerson, Garrett Immel (of the Ghastly Ones), Mel Bergman (of the Phantom Surfers), and Chris Sprague (Sprague Bros, Sugarballs & the 18-Wheelers)

great stuff!

Eddie Bertrand passed away this morning (Sat, Oct 27th, 2012) and will be remembered through his music as one of the founding members of the legendary Bel Airs and the seminal Eddie & the Showmen...



RIP

such a sad day in the surf community.
Eddie will be missed.

for those not fortunate enough to see Eddie play recently(few years ago)
with the Eliminators. here is a link to a bunch of Videos.
http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Eddie+Bertrand+with+the+Eliminators&oq=Eddie+Bertrand+with+the+Eliminators&gs_l=youtube.12...5525.5525.0.7594.1.1.0.0.0.0.175.175.0j1.1.0...0.0...1ac.2.4UbX07UthZU

and here is a pic of Eddie Kicking ass, and wowing the crowd, just like he was still a teenager, taken at the 1st SG101 convention. It was truly an honor to have a legend playing at an event that I put on.




miss ya, and RIP Eddie.
