Just Coastin'


The Surf Coasters
Super Runabout
1999

***Surf Coasters will be in California this September. I have my bar stool already picked out for The Purple Orchid show.

Check out their 2008 tour info at http://www.myspace.com/surfcoastersjapan


The Surf Coasters were organized in 1994, by Shigeo Naka from Tokyo, Japan. Shigeo Naka is a guitar prodigy with amazing fretboard skills. His early love is for American surf music, and many Surf Coasters CDs feature reworkings of famed surf songs from the 60s. But the Surf Coasters are a modern band with modern production and crunchy guitar sound. Shigeo Naka writes originals in styles from quiet accoustic to throbbing garage rockers, from trad style surf to ripping fretboard excursions.The Surf Coasters are now the #1 instrumental band in Japan. They have released more than 20 CDs for the Columbia, BMG, and Victor labels. And with many appearances on film soundtracks (“69”) and video games (“Run About”). They have worked with UK producer Adrian Sherwood, the Southern All Stars (one of the most famous bands in Japan!), and played with Eleki legends Yuzo Kayama and Keigo Iwase.In 1995, famed surfing music legend Dick Dale, known as the “King of the Surf Guitar”, came to Japan and played many shows with The Surf Coasters. He proclaimed Shigeo Naka to be “The Prince of the Surf Guitar”.The Surf Coasters tour consistently in Japan and Shigeo Naka is known for his athletic stage presence. In a small hall or large stadium the Surf Coasters givs everything they have for the performance.
