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.

Booking season for 2019 has arrived.  We are working hard to introduce talent buyers to the power and uniqueness of this band.  We are hoping for a great year.


We had a great summer concert season in 2018  One thing is for sure.  People recognize that we are different.  They like us and the music that we play. They tell us that via emails, FB and IMs.


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!

We brought beach balls and air guitars for the kids to play with ( and keep).  They had a blast.  Instead of just running around, we gave them purpose!  Here is a link to the video>>
