Forbidden Island 2nd Annual Surfin' Smorgasbord
Cowabunga, Surf's Up, kids! So Pig Out, Don't Wipeout! Please note, this is a 21+ event only.
Surf Music, the instrumental soundtrack for generations of wave riders comes to the exotic island of Alameda on August 6, 2011.
Headlining this year's Surfin' Smorgasboard are, all the way from Rome, The Bradipos IV. What exactly is a Bradipos? Some kind of sloth like creature that is the antithesis of these stylish and energetic Italians. Their sound is Vespas and Morricone, Bardot-au-go-go and Sixties Beach Party. This is their first USA tour.
The Secret Samurai work the antipodal influences of passionate Spanish guitar and frenetic Japanese Eleki into a heavy and aggressive trio sound. This is not Gidget's surf music, but an evolution of Dick Dale's crunchy Middle Eastern melodies. The Secret Samurai released their second CD, "Zanshin" earlier this year.
The Surfside IV, come to us from Phoenix Arizona, where there's about a thousand miles of beach before you hit the ocean, for an exclusive Northern California appearance.. They are red-Fez wearin' lads with a garage-party dance beat. Heavy on the trad style, their latest CD is called "Ballad of the Tiki."
Straight outta San Pablo come The Deadbeats, the youngest surf band on the scene. Their style is blistering, ear popping, speed surf. The Deadbeats are the future of surf music passionate about the genre, with the chops to take it new and wonderful places. Their new CD, "Day of the Deadbeats will be available at the show.
