Surf music born of screaming wind over the sand dunes of the Sahara Desert, deafening echoes of waves pounding the Gibraltar Rock, joyous late-night gypsy dances in the small towns of Andalucia, and exotic cacophony of the Marrakesh town square.
The Madeira began in 2004 in Indianapolis, IN. The band features Ivan Pongracic on lead guitar, the founder of the 1990s surf music icons the Space Cossacks; Patrick O'Connor on rhythm guitar, the founder of the Indy space-surf mavens Destination: Earth!; Dane Carter on drums; and Todd Fortier on bass. The Madeira have released four CDs: “Sandstorm” (2005), “Ruins” EP (2006), “Carpe Noctem” (2008) and “Tribal Fires” (2012). They've played all around the US, including three California tours as well as shows on the East Coast and in the South, though they primarily play in the Indiana/Illinois/Ohio/Michigan area. They headlined the third night of the 2009 Surfer Joe Festival in Livorno, Italy, followed by a 10-day Italian tour. UK's Pipeline magazine, the leading surf/instrumental-rock fanzine in the world, selected “Carpe Noctem” Album of the Year in 2008 and “Sandstorm” and “Tribal Fires” as runners-up for the Album of the Year in 2006 and 2012 respectively.
The Alder Kings
The Alder Kings are a three piece, high octane, high gain, instrumental psycho surf-a-billy band from Chicago.
The Revomatics are an instrumental hot rod/surf band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Their sound and look harkens back to early sixties bands like The Ventures, The Sentinels and The Surfaris. The group consists of veteran musicians who have been active in Milwaukee's local music scene since the later years of the 20th century. Their high octane set includes popular surf songs with a fuel injection of sixties garage rock and is sometimes augmented by Go-Go and Hula Hoop dancers. These fellows really know how to put the pedal down! T
Wild surf & 50's / 60's instrumental sounds from the surf capital of the world...Indiana. Well I guess they do have dunes. They come complete with fezs, fezzes, fez? I'm not quite sure!
