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...
It is no secret that SURF ZUP is heavily influenced by The Ventures. Sadly, the original Ventures are deceased, but we hope their music will be eternal----
