Surfin Sundays

 
Dick Dale concert
Dean Torrence - Jan & Dean

 

Huntington Beach Surfing Museum is the first to launch the summer with its Surfin' Sundays. Pictured above are Dean Torrence of Jan & Dean (singer at left mic) and Dick Dale (singer at right mic with black, sleeveless t-shirt).


Gotta sing surff? Well the music of surf isn't usually sung, but on the launch of the Surfing Sundays Summer Concerts (Schedule), the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museum sometimes breaks from tradition. Dean Torrence (Jan & Dean, and Dick Dale, famous guitarist who travels the globe in live concert performances, both joined the featured band at the International Surfing Museum for some good vibrations.


Put together by booking agent extraordinaire, Linda Miller, an extended concert series usually includes well known surf bands such Surftones, Insect Surfers, The Eliminators, Outer Wave, Torquays, The Nocturnes and many more.


What's amazing about Huntington Beach's best kept secret (it's free summer surfing band concerts), is that the performers actually come to the beach for the honor of performing to an audience that digs the sounds of an electric guitar and a solid drum beat and music that floats through the beach breeze in flawless melody.


In existence for around 10 years, the summer surfing concerts are more than a joy for the beach crowd that gathers 'round to hear the sounds and feel the good vibrations. The event actually draws musicians together. Many haven't performed with each other for up to 10, 20, 30 or 40 years. Now that's a very long time! One example is Eddie Bertrand with the Sound Wave, appearing in a previous concert.


But you wouldn't know it when you hear them perform, because most have never given up their passion for surfing music. The actually a booked and perform around the globe as a resurgence of this popular music has brought back a sound that some may or may not relate to surfing.


For a vacation or local Sunday drive, head over to Huntington Beach California for "The Kind" music, then grab "The Kind" burger at TK Burgers on Pacific Coast Highway, a surfers' favorite for decades since it was named "The Kind."
