As a drummer. A SoCal surf band is reforming and I was asked to try out. Last night was the audition I guess you would call it. A few songs in I was asked to join. Cool beans!<br /> <br /> These guys have some CD sales, have toured a bit, have some great original material and are well known in the modern surf genre.<br /> <br /> More info with names after we put a little more together. This project will have two FDP members in it.

Are your prayer beads maple or rosewood?

Daytonas?<br /> Cocktail Preachers?<br /> Nebulas?<br /> Halibuts? <br /> Diamondheads? <br /> Aqua Velvets?<br /> <br /> That's all I got on my surf playlists (besides Los Straitjackets & Dick Dale, obvs!)<br />

WOW! Very cool!<br /> <br /> I have two of their rekkids on my iPod.<br /> <br /> Note: don't use any reverb on the drums. That's only for guitar :o)

Very cool! I'm not up on modern surf, just an old-school Ventures fan, but it sounds like a lot of fun.

Jack, I was but had some issues with a member or two. Nothing serious but some mean spirited stuff happened.

I know what you mean. Sometimes that forum feels like a locals only surf brake. Just as you get outside you start hearing stuff from other surfers that you are not welcome.

Well, we are through a few rehearsals now and things are going very well. Not sure if our rhythm player is going to hang but the band is quite good as a trio.<br /> <br /> Interesting thing last time together. I asked to play our "leaders" guitar after we were done for the evening. He said yes. I played some "Lonely Bull" and he has offered to play a bit of drums so we can switch. This is getting better all the time. Could be the best of both worlds.<br /> <br /> We may do a showcase in mid December. If it comes together I'll post.

I don't recall ever seeing a rhythm guitarist with them, but that band is one of my faves!<br /> <br /> (still haven't put that clue together with a band)

Huh, I never would have labelled them as a surf band.<br /> <br /> Saw them at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston in the early 80's. It was Halloween. Great show.<br /> <br /> However, there might have been psychedelics involved.... ;^)

Saw them around 1976 in the SF Bay area. Took a date not knowing what to expect. Wow, didn't know you could do that stuff on a concert stage. I apologized to my date, but she just laughed and said it was different and it was OK. We joked about it for months after.
