Instro Summit 2014!

Instro Summit is THE largest surf/instrumental music festival in the world.  This year will be my third consecutive year performing with The Mystery Men? and first with MOONBASE.  The event has become somewhat of a family reunion of sorts and many of the groups performing I am honored to call friends.  Crispy Bess, promoter, has really outdone himself this year bringing in 28 astounding acts from across the US.  Held at Motorco Music Hall in Durham, NC May 16-18, check out this forum on Surf Guitar 101 for more details.

New blog!

I have recently decided to put on a monthly surf show here in Atlanta called the Southern Surf Stomp! where we feature the best regional and local groups (as well as non-surf groups).  Upcoming shows can be found in the shows section of this site as well as my new blog, Southern Surf Stomp!.  The blog is meant to promote the shows, bands, and friends of the stomp and will contain pictures, videos, flyers, reviews, etc.  In the near future, I'd like to host a podcast as well with songs and interviews of bands that will be playing upcoming events.
