Formed in the summer of 2002, the Reverburritos began the task of bringing their own unique brand of surf instrumental music to the local Little Rock music scene. Deciding to mix their own original material with a variety of cover songs (from past and present bands), the Reverburritos have honed a truly creative sound and approach to surf/instro music.

Surf is not so much retro as it is a progressive and vibrant American music form. With the Reverburritos, surf music is still alive and well because nothing rocks and conveys a mood better than reverb drenched instrumental guitar based music.

Reverburritos achieved the number 1 instrumental rock song on garageband.com with "Go Pills." Additionally, this trio has received extensive airplay on the Twang Shebang, Tsunami Soul and Devlar Surf Sessions internet radio programs. The bands first cd release WIDGET also garnered a 4 star review from Phil Dirt (the guru of surf music) on reverbcentral.com!

Eddie Angel (Los Straighjackets) is a big fan of the band's first CD, WIDGET. The guys are in the studio finishing up their second CD. Soon, surf fans!!!

EDITOR'S NOTE: Reverburritos guitarist Tiki Tim Moritz will be attending Hukilau 2010. He will be packing some Reverburritos swag, too!

Phil Dirt on the Reverburritos first CD, Widget:

"It's great to hear a whole CD of material from this emerging band. The songs are well written, and the arrangements, while simple trio, and very effective. Some real gems here!"

"Go Pills!" is a circular and edgy track with a gutty feel and rock twang. Not really melodic, but it has ample energy and flair.

"Drive By" is a slick flowing kind of jam, with guitar and organ trading prime roles. It's an attractive song that seems to worm its way in.

"Magic Carpet Shop (Of Horrors)" This is a very nice track, with a moderate pace and gentle flow that's both endearing and engaging. It has a Spanish flavor, and a bit of a scary edge. Quite nice!

"Durn The Torpedoes" is a splendid song with a great circular melody line and wonderful warmth. It's infectious and immediately familiar. Totally cool!

"Hawg Leg" This is a mid tempo piece with a well developed riff and excellent use of whammy chords. While the tone is edgy, it's still inviting and warm.

"Martini Sunset" This soft and island whammy track moves with the ebb and flow of the tide. It's sunny and warm without being too light. Very nice.

"Hammerhead" has the kind of feeling of "26 Miles Across The Sea," but much more edge and energy than that. Double picked coolness, great chordage, and an infectious gate.

"Eleki Gitaa" With a nod to Japanese eleki, and an underbelly of solid flow, this slightly tweaky song is a nice combo of Japanese rock and modern surf. Its engaging melody and easy flowing sound are quite inviting.

"Das Boot" Slow and liquid chords open this somewhat edgy song. It's quite fluid and the melody line circles and returns to its beginning. The bridges are more menacing, and the drums are excellent. Quite nice.

"Fistful of Wistful" An excellent title for a dreamy reverb fest with warm chords and soft bass. The delicate drums round out the experience, which is quite pretty and very soothing, while remaining in the rock envelope.

"County Line Burnout" A sort of "What Ever Happened To Eddie" rhythm opens "County Line Burnout." This is more of a rock instro, with great tribal drums and edgy surfisms. Very cool.

"Jumping Bean" Rhythmic bounce and chop-chord flair, whammy and tribal exotic drums, and the bass ties it together. Fun and light hearted.

"Tin Star" Great drums here, along with big whammy chords and moody bass. Combining surf, spaghetti western, and moody storm surges, "Tin Star" calls to the exotic images hiding in your imagination. Cowboy beats, and big ringing notes. Excellent!

Phil's recommended each track on the CD, but he gave "Durn the Torpedoes" and "Tin Star" both 5-stars.
