Parents and Grandparents...
What if there was a fun and interactive way you could introduce the kids to other awesome forms of music like SURF MUSIC, rockabilly, baroque, reggae, mariachi, black gospel, folk, hawaiian, and many more styles...?
The Surfaris are pleased to announce their participation in the Band Together online music educational program.
This past August, Bob Berryhill and his family band ( The Surfaris ) gave interviews to BT on how fun it is to learn and to perform surf music together as a family. The Surfaris recently sat down with BT creators Steve Rogers and Renea Hetzer as they shared their vision to introduce surf music to the next generation in a fun, interactive way.
Band Together has just released their first online digital album/program called "Vibrations" which features the music and interviews from The Surfaris. Vibrations does an excellent job interactively showing the kids what "surf music" is, who the major players were, and how to play their own surf music. There are short videos, photos and stories on how to get your kids appreciating and playing surf music. There are also great stories describing all the instruments, equipment needed to play surf music. There is even online surf guitar lessons to get you started!
This program is ideal for homeschooling families or parents/ grandparents interested in giving their children extra music education. For more info on Band Together and how to get your kids into this months Vibrations program go to: http://bandtogether.rocks/

The Surfaris in Bulgaria!
Watch Bob & Gene Berryhill of The Surfaris being interviewed recently on Bulgarian BTV. Of course the interview has been dubbed in Bulgarian and has some ads...but it's fun to see the reach of The Surfaris music in a country that wasn't allowed to officially broadcast Rock N Roll music until the 90's

The Surfaris and Surfin' "Rock The Beach" at The Clark Center For
The Performing Arts in Arroyo Grande, CA.
Bob Berryhill's Surfaris, along with The Beach Boys tribute band Surfin', rocked the Pismo Beach area with the surf songs we all know and love. The stage was adorned with a 1958 Ford Woodie and a 1932 Ford Roadster with rumble seat!
This week Bob was blessed with the opportunity to meet one of his biggest guitar influences, Duane Eddy. Bob was invited to join a private birthday bash put on for Duane at the Musician's Hall Of Fame Museum in Nashville, TN. Mr. Eddy is considered to be the one of the musical links between 1950's rockabilly and 1960's surf music. Many of you remember Duane's signature instrumental guitar hits like Rebel Rouser, Ramrod and Peter Gunn. In our March newsletter we featured a picture with Duane Eddy and Bob's Fender Reverb unit. Bob said "Meeting Duane Eddy was one the highlights of my musical career. It was an honor to meet one of the guitarists who inspired me to play guitar. Duane is a great guy and I appreciated the opportunity to connect with him."
Thank you Southern California!

Duane Eddy checks out Bob Berryhill's 1962 Fender Reverb Unit at the Musicians' Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN
Today, Duane Eddy, performer of hits like Rebel Rouser, Peter Gunn and Because They Are Young dropped by the Musicians Hall of Fame. He wanted to see Bob's well worn 1962 reverb box. This was the box that gave instrumental surf songs like Wipe Out and Misirlou by Dick Dale the "wet" surf sound. Bob has always been a big fan of Duane Eddy's "Twangs The Thang" album. It was a huge honor that he wanted to see some of The Surfaris equipment.
The Musician's Hall Of Fame in Nashville, TN has just featured Bob Berryhill and The Surfaris in museum
