We worked really hard to book great events for 2020. And then COVID-19 hit Michigan.  Of 25 booked shows, 24 were cancelled.  We have no idea what will happen in 2021.  The  new  norm  may  be  very  abnormal. 


When our leaders decide it is safe for us to play, we will be ready, willing and able.


The arts can't survive being shut down for much longer.  People need live music.            


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 across wide domeographics
          We are the real deal.

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

A fan commented on Facebook - "SURF ZUP (is) a surf band from Detroit area that (is) getting standing room only at their gigs.....if they are in your area....see and hear them for sure..."
