Welcome to the Official Website of the Incredible Sound Waves
   Good Times Rock and Roll
.

THE BAND:

The Soundwaves play the great Rock and Roll songs of the 50's,60's and the 70's with a little Country in the mix.  We also specialize in the unique "surf" sound of the 60's made famous by such artists as Dick Dale, The Bel-Aires, Chantays,The Ventures and many others.

THE STORY:

Although formed as an Instrumental 60's Surf band, the SoundWaves have evolved into one of the premier 50's/60's Oldies Bands in the Southern California.

The original SoundWaves were all members of various surf bands in their high  school days in the early to mid-sixties. 40 years later the surf music scene was still thriving in Southern California as well as the rest of the world and the SoundWaves formed to play at their high school class's 40th reunion.

In March of 2005, the SoundWaves won the annual "Taste of the Bands" at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro placing first out of twelve bands competing and earning top spot at the Taste in San Pedro festival in August of that year. The members of Sound Waves have played professionally in one form or another since their high school days as well.

The SoundWaves offer a wide range of 50's 60's and Country vocals to their extensive repertoire. They're favorite gigs are, clubs, car shows, high school reunions, surf venues and charity events. Check out our "Tour" tab for a listing of the various venues we perform at and our "Music" tab for a partial listing of the songs we love to play.

John,

I just wanted to thank you and the guys for a great evening . I've been doing New Years for the Burbank Elks Lodge for 12 years and I have to say this one was the best yet. I had no complaints about the music or food . Your band was great and I hope the guys had a good time as well. I'll be in touch when I have the next event lined up.

Yours,

Harvey .

 

Hi John,

What can I say?  I'm pretty sure we had THE coolest cocktail reception EVER all because of you guys!  It was incredible.

Thank you so much.  Walt was so appreciative that you guys were so cool about letting him play with you too.  

Everyone loved you guys.  Can I please mail you a thank you note?  Where is a good address?

I really just can't thank you enough.  We loved it.  We're so grateful.  We hope we'll have the opportunity to see you again soon.

Best!

Hey guys, I just wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate the absolute professionalism you all showed at EFF this past weekend... You all played and sang your butts off, and blew away, the people that were there.
You guys all made me look great, and I can't thank you enough. It truly is a blessing to have good friends to call on when you most need them.

John,
Only one word comes to mind when describing the Soundwaves performance at ZFest 2010 "Kowabunga"!

You guys were the hit of the Friday night festivities which helped us raise money for Make A Wish. I would highly recommend you to any and all comers and wish you guys the best with every note you play and every song that you sing!

The band was fantatsic today and really made our event hum. You can really tell how integral the band is when the music stops and you immediately miss it and can't wait for it to start again. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

John and the SoundWaves,

I want to thank you for the wonderful performance you provided us with at our recent church event.  You were an incredible addition to our event.  Your level of musical expertise and talent were matched by your ability to include the audience in their performance.  Everyone had a chance to participate, and they all truly enjoyed themselves.  We look forward to having you again sometime!  Thank you!

l am writing to formally thank you for the outstanding job that you and the band did for the June 21st opening of Hot Rod, Cars & Art exhibition. l was impressed by your positive attitude in the face of the terrible heat we endured that day. In spite of the crippling heat you and the band performed with the utmost professionalism and good spirits.

Sincerely,
Larry Hurst

The Band made the evening something really special. As I said, as you were leaving, I was told multiple times that this was the best band we have ever had. I have to agree. Not only was it fun, danceable music, but you were so sensitive to play for conversation during dinner. What a joy.
You are all wonderful!! And we can't thank you enough.

We had a great time and so did everyone there, you guys are awesome!!!  We love the music you play, and it was so cute having Molly come up and sing at the end. Can’t wait to see you all again, maybe next at the VFW or 49er.

I want to thank you guys!
I could not ask for better perfection, you guys were an absolute hit!
We had great attendance allowing our budget to increase with no sweat .
We got wonderful accolades for a huge success attributed to your band.
Thanks again.
