SURFER JOE MUSIC exists in Italy since 2002 to promote surf music.
We deal with booking of instrumental surf artists and we organize parties like the famous
SURFER JOE SUMMER FESTIVAL, the world's #1 surf music event.
SURFER JOE SUMMER FESTIVAL 2016
We reached our 10th anniversary last year, in 2015, and we did the surf festival with the most amazing line-up of concerts ever in history! Not enough? What more? We need to go to edition #11... Can't wait.
We are already in the process of defining bands and attractions, so hold on a little bit more. The festival will be announced on JANUARY 1st 2016, but we can anticipate the dates: JUNE 16-17-18-19 2016. (please be aware that we consider a tiny little possibility of changing them still).

SURFER JOE MUSIC STOREYour amazing one-stop for all your surf music needs!
Selling the albums and merchandise of surf bands is a "natural" extension of our business. So we opened the store in late 2013 to showcase the new productions from around the world.
We sell the releases from most of the labels specializing in surf music, especially instrumental, plus we stock classic albums and even used CDs and LPs from private people. We are going to have for sale one of the largest selections of surf music and we try to work for the surf fans locating for them rare and difficult to find albums.
Through a very easy and understandable interface, we offer worldwide shipping using postal services and couriers at the best rates possible.

SURF MUSIC? WHAT?
Surf is generally and historically considered an instrumental music genre derived from jazz, rock 'n' roll and blues, born in southern California at the very end of the 50s and largely diffused all over the US between 1961 and 1965.
The music has since then spread out anywhere and Surfer Joe is just an example of how global and intense surf music's production is today with new surf bands growing and developing every year.
Surfer Joe helps surf music to never die.
THE SURF COMMUNITY
Some people think surf music had a very short life in the beginning of the 60s in USA, but they are obviously wrong.
The main features of this genre, that from the Dick Dale's sound evolved into a reverb drenched mix of guitars & drums, have been carried on successfully by a large multitude of bands around the globe. But NOT all instrumental music is surf music... and surf music is NOT "surfers who play some guitar"... :-)
Search online for "surf music" and you will find a lot of sources to tell you the stories and facts of this original Californian movement and its great diffusion everywhere!
