gigs with THE SURFARIS on the west coast mid-June went off
'without a hitch,' generating large crowds of surf music lovers

As most of you know, THE VENTURES are gettin' ready & will soon
be off to Japan for what constitutes their 55th anniversary sharing
their music with that country.   The lineup will again be Leon Taylor,
Bob & Ian Spalding & Gerry McGee.

return is to 'tie-in' some East Coast concert dates with our annual
fest Saturday October 7th.   Yes, that's right- we're 'holding out hope
THE US VENTURES grace us with their presence at the fest this year.

& speaking about the fest, I've decided to bring back a Bob Spalding
idea from back in 2011 when Leon Taylor also attended the all day
gathering- the FIFTEEN + minute 'grand finale' of WIPE OUT!

That'll do it for now with 'updates!'
