So a little history real quick,
If Dick Dale is the King of Surf Guitar,
Eddie Bertrand is #2.
Kinda like Arthru Lyman,and Martin Denny are #1 for Exotica.
Eddie was Originally in the Bel Airs of "Mr. Moto" fame, (first surf song)
Then after that he formed the Amazing Eddie and the Showmen(Squad Car)

I'm Doing a Big Benefit show to raise money for Eddie Bertrand.
He's had a couple falls and broken his hips.
And he is on Hard times.
So some friends and I are puttin together
a big show of Love for Eddie.

if you can't make the show,
and want to Donate to a fund for Eddie,
see here:

we will probably have a site, or paypal account where you can donate to Eddie from afar.
But Please try to make it if you can.

also.
if you want to do a Tribute show in your area,
and send the funds to Eddie, that would be excellent.

That would be great too.

This looks like fun and a great cause, I'll try to attend.

Great meeting you New Years Eve at the Bahooka (although my memory is somewhat blurry from that night for some reason, hah).

Cheers,
Rob

Trevor and I will be there! Trev's always been a big fan of Eddie, and we were really sorry to hear he was having a tough time. What a worthy cause. Thanks Jeff for putting this on.

Ah, such a nice reply.
thanks for the kind words Deanna
and it's my pleasure, and a needed benefit show.
thanks for coming to the show.



Heads up people,
word on the street is its gonna be packed.
get there early to get a good seat.
and a parking spot.

its 20 dollars at the door,
cash only.
and there will be many raffle prizes.
so bring tons of money for raffle tix,
and
money to buy food and booze,
or just max yer credit card out.


mine already is,


Jeff(btd)
