For the first time in 4 years, I am super stoked to announce that:

The Surf Guitar 101 convention will be 1 week before Tiki Oasis.
So if you can get off a whole week.
Come out the weekend before Tiki Oasis,for the Surf Music Convention,
Then check out all the tiki bars in So. Cal. during the week between.
Hit the beach or the amusement parks during the day
Then GO to Tiki Oasis the following weekend.

More fun and entertainment than you can shake a stick at.








It’s hard to believe, but the fourth SurfGuitar101.com convention is now upon us! Mark your calendars now, Saturday, August 13th 2011 is a date you will not want to miss! Join us for a celebration of live surf music in the heart of Southern California!
We are absolutely pleased to announce the headlining act will be none other than Satan’s Pilgrims! We are also excited to continue the tradition started last year by hosting bands from outside the United States. This year, visiting from foreign shores we will have The Razorblades (Germany), The Bradipos IV (Italy), and The Blue Demons (Canada)!

As before, we will host a special “Legends of Surf” jam, where members of original 1960’s surf bands will play the classics in the genre. You won’t want to miss this! Past years have featured members of The Belairs, Eddie & The Showmen, The Chantays, The Lively Ones, and The Crossfires. This year we are going to feature the music of The Belairs, Davie “King Fuzz” Allan, and a tribute to Eddie Bertrand!

Do you play an instrument? Why not sign up for the SG101 member jam? Site members get up and play surf classics old and new, sometimes standing side by side with musician’s from the original bands!

We’ll also have a large vendor space featuring CD’s, vinyl, t-shirts, DVD’s and more!

All of this is happening Saturday, August 13th, 2011 at The Starting Gate, 5052 Katella Avenue, in Los Alamitos, California, 9am to 8pm.

Here is the complete band lineup for the convention:

Satan’s Pilgrims -
http://satanspilgrims.com/
http://www.myspace.com/satanspilgrims
One of the most popular and influential modern surf bands, these caped musicians hail from the Pacific Northwest, home of the Ventures, The Sonics, and The Wailers.

The Razorblades - http://www.myspace.com/therazorbladesgermany
All the way from Germany, you’ll dig their fast and loud take on surf music.

The Bradipos IV - http://www.myspace.com/bradipos4
From Italy, you’ll love their traditional surf and spaghetti western sounds.

The Cocktail Preachers - http://www.myspace.com/cocktailpreachers
This Chicago band indeed preaches to the faithful the sounds of surf, exotica, and Mai-Tais.

Daikaiju - http://www.myspace.com/daikaiju
This Kabuki masked band hails from Alabama, and plays a high explosive, rocket-fueled progressive form of surf music. One of the most talked about live acts on the scene.

Meshugga Beach Party - http://www.meshuggabeachparty.com/meshugga/index.htm
Who knew? Traditional surf music combined with Jewish folk songs! You have to see to believe these chosen surfers from Northern California.

The Deadbeats - http://www.myspace.com/deadbeats63
One of the hottest and youngest surf bands today, these kids like to play old school surf music loud and fast!

The Blue Demons - http://www.myspace.com/thebluedemons
From Toronto, these wrestling super heroes will take you to the mat with their pile-driving take on surf and garage music.

The Tequila Worms - http://www.myspace.com/thetequilaworms
Another young band, these guys hail from Anaheim, California, and sound like The Ventures after getting in a car crash with Link Wray!

San,

As of now, there hasn't been a big demand
For presale tix. Just show up early and pay at the door.
Charge is 25 dollars.
The doors open at 8 am. They have some great breakfast specials there.
Vending starts around 9 am, show at 10 am

Jason,
True there, thanks for posting that.
There will be a bunch of vendors,
Maybe even a tad of tiki stuff.
Some selling very hard to find books,and music.
So this is a good time to shop for yourself, or for the holidays too.

Jeff btd

Why attend the SG101 convention ??

I can think of 4 good reasons. Let's start off with reason number 4 and work our way up.

Reason #4: You hate Surf music and/or feel it has no place in Tiki culture...

BUT... you want to express your appreciation for BigTikiDude's good friendship and general Tiki ambassadorship.

You can show your support by attending HIS event.

It's definitely a labor of love.

I am saving my pennies, because I bought a butt-load of Music at the last SG101 event. I am so looking forward to being turned on to some "Surf" that is new to me. If any of you haven't seen Daikaju yet....well you are in for a treat. They bring it and they don't let up!!!
