The first scheduled show will be Dick Dale, the King of the Surf Guitar with special guests The In- timidators, July 2. Tickets are now available at Event.asp?event=371750. Dick Dale (born Richard An- thony Monsour on May4, 1937) is an American surf rock guitar- ist, known as The King of the Surf Guitar. Dale experimented with rever- beration and made use of custom- made Fender amplifiers, including the first-ever 100-watt guitar am- plifier. Born in South Boston, Mas- sachusetts Dale and his family moved to Orange County, Califor- nia in 1954. He learned to surf and became interested in music. He soon learned to play the drums, the ukulele, the trumpet, and finally the guitar. Among his early musical influ- ences was his uncle, an cud player performing belly dance music. Much of his early music shows a Middle Eastern influence; Dale is often credited as one of the first electric guitarists to employ non- Western scales in his playing. Dale himself was a surfer and wanted his music to reflect the sounds he heard in his mind while surfing. While he is primarily known for introducing the use of guitar reverb that would give the guitar a "wet" sound, which has since become a staple of surf music, it was Dale's-staccato picking that was his trademark. Since Dale was left-handed he was initially forced to play a fight-handed model, like Jimi Hendrix. His outrageous styl- ing on stage was an influence on the young Hendrix. The Catalina Country Club While poised on a knoll over- looking picturesque Avalon, visi- tors can enjoy live music while admiring the view from the former home to William Wrigley Jr.'s Chi- cago Cub's spring training camp. The Catalina Country Club is home to two concert series ~this summer. Los-Angeles-based Koffee- house Music Productions, which facilitates concerts and entertain- ment for such renowned venues and events as The John Ford Am- phitheatre, the Temecula Balloon and Wine Festival, and Sundance Film Festival, is helping Catalina host ongoing Thursday night con- certs. Meanwhile, the legendary Steamer's Jazz Club, located in Fullerton, CA, is teaming up with Catalina to produce a jazz concert series every Friday under the stars. Both weekly events are $10 per person and the fee will be added to dinner charge. Country Club lineup June 23 Erick Macek's mix ofmelodic grooves and vocal warmth has won him worldwide recognition. Jess Furman, a New-York- raised and LA-based songwriter and performer, rocks out on the guitar and jams on the keyboard, her performances are sprinkled with killer lyrics. Trevor DaVis creates both a joyous and emotional sensation as he discloses his innermost thoughts and captivates his audience with a strong, soulful voice. The lineup for June 24 is still to be determined. Thanks for the loan I just made the last payment on my golf cart. I'd like to thank Loft Camacho and Kelly Dahl of U.S. Bank for suggesting and arranging the loan. That exceptional, person- al, face to face customer service is the reason I'm writing these words today. Thank you Lori and Kelly. Chris Blehm Avalon Top photo: Dick Dale. Above is Jess Furman.
