Canada's East Coast instro-nuts, URBAN SURF KINGS, play surf music, 1960’s style. Think the beach blasts of Dick Dale, the leather jacket rumble of Link Wray, and the biker fuzz of B-movie heroes Davie Allan & the Arrows.
The 12 year old trio features Rev Hank on surf guitar, Crash Flagg on surf bass, and Inky on traps. That’s right, no singer, but not to worry…there’s always plenty of dancing on and off the stage: the swim, the frug, the watusi, the twist… give their CDs a spin!
