Reverb Galaxy is a Maryland based surf instrumental band that preserves the history of surf music, while exploring its future. Formed in 2004 by guitarists Art Svrjcek and Joe Atkins, the band’s focus has always been on delivering passionate, well-crafted songs with enduring melodies. Sometimes playful, then suddenly powerful and commanding, the music reflects the ocean’s ever-changing nature. Jim Colby on bass and Jeremy Carlson on drums forge the pounding rhythmic beats so essential to the true surf sound.
Starting with the adrenaline-pumping “Invasion” right into the “Balkan Stomp”, Reverb Galaxy delivers the classic Dick Dale-esque tremolo picking and glissandos soaked with plenty of Fender reverb. Follow that with the beautifully arranged “10 Miles to Nags Head” and their tribute to the Shadows’ Hank Marvin, and you’ll hear how this band still honors the influences of the genre and its culture. All the classic surf styles are captured on their new CD, "Angle of Attack": spy, space, beach, and even a little country.
Just like Duke Kahanamoku, George Freeth, and other wave pioneers, Reverb Galaxy’s mission is to embrace the soul of the ocean and spread its Aloha spirit to the world.
