SURF ZUP is on a mission to bring back the great guitar instrumental hits from the 60's. The musical genre known by many, is generally referred to as "Surf Music". The formula is simple but powerful. Guitars, drums, catchy beats, great melodies, and plenty of reverb results in songs that are familiar to many.

The songs are played true to their original form. Vintage guitars, amps, effects and playing styles make it happen, just like it was in 1963.

We are purely an instrumental rock band. No vocals.  Just great guitars and drums.

We are not  just another local cover band playing the "Fake-book" versions of worn out blues and classic rock songs.  We are a refreshing alternative, and we appeal to audiences with a variety of musical tastes.
We are the real deal.


Oh, and we are Surf  Zup, not SurfZup, or surfs up, or surfszup or surfz up...

The Summer Concert Season is in full swing.  We are excited to play at some new events this year.  We are also grateful to the buyers who understand and love what we do, and invite us back every year. 


For people who want to hear Bruno Mars (for the millionth time) we are not your band. We are designed to be different, and a change from the majority of other cover bands.


We will continue to play the great instrumental songs that cover bands can't or won't play. Check out our Songlist  and you will see what we mean.

This just may be the best photo, ever.  We are a happy meal for a new generation of fans!
