My ol¹ pal TEISCO DEL REY ‹ Austin TX¹s premiere surf rocker ‹ is
So Cal to play at Deke Dickerson¹s annual ³Guitar Geek² festival in
this coming Saturday, January 19 (headlined this year by the legendary
Collins Kids of Œ50s rockabilly fame). And I¹m stoked because I get
part of the all-star band backing him for this.
*** And NOW I¹M ALL THE MORE STOKED because we have JUST ADDED a
engagement for SUNDAY NIGHT (the 20th) at the PURPLE ORCHID TIKI BAR in
SEGUNDO. (The Glasgow Tiki Shakers are also on the bill here...) ***
Details about both gigs are below, in a reprint of Teisco¹s own blurb
these events. I¹ll just add that Teisco is one of my favorite people
quite a colorful and quirky character, to put it mildly! It¹s sure to
great show at whichever event you might attend. Please read the blurb
you¹ll get the picture...
