Surf City Here We Come!

Do the Limbo, baby!!

Do the Limbo, baby!!

Our pal and superfine DJ Josh Styles is often involved with some pretty exciting events—many generated by The Man himself. For the second or third year in a row, he has been asked to make something fabulous happen following the Dick Dale performance at the Brooklyn Bowl. On August 2, he did just that. Not only did he round up some cool DJs, but he got Anna Copa Cabanna to Go-Go dance, he put a grass skirt on the DJ booth, threw a bunch of beach balls out on the dance floor (do the kick-ball, baby!) and got horror film maker Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Brain Damage) to MC a limbo contest! Plus, there were prizes and surprises galore! And he called it Surf City!

The great Dick Dale did his show, displaying his incendiary guitar playing and ending with his signature theme, “Miserlou.” It took a while to get the DJ booth set up, but once it was, WHAM, Surf City was in full blown non-stop Go-Go mode, with DJs Drew Redmond (Finger Lickin’ Fridays), Mike Hunchback (Screeching Weasel), Mr. Styles (of course) and Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus, blasting rockin’ trash all night long. Mr. Redmond played his usual trash (that is to say, the wild and rockin’ stuff!) and Mr. Styles played some excellent beach-summer-surf-car-themed songs (“I Live for the Sun” has got to be one of the greatest records of all time!), leaving Mr. Hunchback and The Boog to whip the crowd into a frenzy with some hot guitar-driven surf instrumentals.

Apparently, The Boog has become the go-to guy for limbo dance parties, as he was called upon to play calypso records during the limbo dance contest held at Surf City! Let Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus play calypso records at YOUR next limbo dance party!!! Call him today!
