Surf rock has been a staple of the American music scene since the early 1950’s. Dick Dale’s “Let’s Go Trippin’” could very wekll be the first American surf rock song to hit the charts. Other bands, such as The Ventures, Jan and Dean, The Bel-Aires, and, of course, the Beach Boys, have ridden the musical waves of stardom by using that infamous “fender reverb” as a signature sound. It’s safe to say that in modern times the “surf punk” genre effortlessly carried the tradition – The Crammps, Pixies, Butthole Surfers, even, to some degree, The Ramones displayed elements of true surfer squabble mentality. However, few modern-day acts have yet accomplished the raw, unadulterated musical viability of, say, Dick Dale and the Ventures. Fortunately, the Bay Area has the Hodaddys. If you dig surf rock (and we’re sure you secretly do!) you’ve got to hear these guys. They don’t just catapult you to pristine beaches of Southern California, but vault you in a time warp to the early ’60s when Surf rock shaped an entire generation. Southern California was a melting-pot of many styles of music. True, rock and roll music was popular, with instrumental rockers such as Dale and the Del-Tones, Eddy, Link Wray, The Surfaris and Santo and Johnny proving that you didn’t need strong vocal ability to make it big. Los Angeles was a hub for Jazz, and the biggest acts usually played there. Unlike much of the US at the time, large numbers of Mexicans lived in this part of California, and their music was no doubt heard by many aspiring musicians of the era. Rock instrumentation, with a jazz-influenced drummer and some Latin influences equals Surf rock The Hodaddys are keeping it a live and well in Tampa Bay

The Hodaddys are King Pompano on Guitar, drummer Knee Jerk and Daddy G on Bass. This amazing retro Bay Area trio definitely holds their own. They’ve been playing together since1997. Knee Jerk is no jerk is perhaps one of the most solid drummers you’ll ever experience. He consistently maintains a stalwart groove and never falters; forever fixated on the next beat- measure like a surfer melting on a surf board riding the wave crest. The Hodaddy energy and chemistry is easy to feel even if you’ve never seen them live, but it is guaranteed that hearing also is believing. Recreating that classic surf rock is not as easy as cranking the Fender reverb and strumming with intensity. The HODADDYS are serious about their music they spend their personal time at Firetrap Studio in St Petersburg where they work their surfer magic – rehearsing, recording, hanging out, plotting, and, amazingly, restoring antique automobiles and boats. The Hoadaddys are just regular guys hanging out, having fun, and playing the music that past generations loved and, most of all, respected. Surfs up! Check out the HODADDYS at hodaddys.com.



Local surf-rockers the Hodaddys will be performing at the Ringside Cafe tonight at 9 p.m.

The Hodaddys are unique in their complete lack of vocals, focusing rather on the fast guitar riffs and bass strums that made surf rock such an integral part of the music culture in the '60s and today's rockabilly scene. Make sure to bring some comfy clothing for dancing as the band always inspires a group of people to swing in front of the stage.

There's no cover, so you can kick back with an extra drink while you enjoy the show.

The Hodaddys on MySpace
Filed under: Favorite Websites, Ugly on MySpace — bgmacaw @ 1:02 am

Here’s a MySpace band site you should check out, The Hodaddys. They’re a pretty decent Florida based surf rock band. Check ‘em out live if you’re in the Tampa/St. Pete area (I think that’s where they’re from) or give a listen to them on their web page.

I can’t give them really bad marks on their web page since, well, if it wasn’t ugly it wouldn’t be MySpace.

Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA The Hodaddys - Hodaddys Play Surf Hits - Deluxe Edition DVD I have one overriding comment. This band seems like a really good trad band with a solid drummer and great guitars. The mixes really limit the effectiveness of their material, both in studio, and on the live document. The music and the performances are great! This could have easily been a 4-star release! These tracks are bass-heavy mono, slightly stereoized with reverb. Tracks 1-14 are the CD. The mixes are really bass heavy and leads way too low, restraining their hidden power. Tracks 15-26 are the live DVD. They are obviously live soundboard, with the lead guitar extremely low in al tracks. It's a cool visual document of a band doing the real thing. Picks: Squad Car, Penetration, Pintor, Que Honda, Wave Walk'n', Mr. Moto, Dawn Patrol, The Wedge, Taco Wagon, Calhoun Surf, Skin Diver, Burnin' Rubber, A/A Fueler, Nite Surfer, Namu, Storm Dancer, Rumblin' Rod, Mr. Rebel, Soul Surfer, A Shot In The Dark, Fiero, Surfin' With The Sharks, Vaporizer, Surf Trashed, Que Honda, Blue Venus Track by Track Review Squad Car Surf (Instrumental) This is a very respectful version of Eddie and the Showmen's "Squad Car." The lead is played a lot like Paul Johnson intended when he originally wrote it. The delicacy of the guitar is refreshing, though it's a tad low in the mix. Penetration Surf (Instrumental) Reverb pumping as The Hodaddys perform The Pyramids' "Penetration." Where the Ventures monkeyed with string swipes, these guys employed glissandos. Rock solid. Pintor Surf (Instrumental) This is a dripping reverb cover of one of the great Spanish flavored surf instros. The Hodaddys play with extreme reverence and wonderful watery tone. There are nowhere near enough covers of The Pharos' "Pintor!" Que Honda Surf (Instrumental) Satan's Pilgrims' "Que Honda" is stomped out in fine form. An interesting modern cover choice, the song is just as cool as the original. Wave Walk'n' Surf (Instrumental) The Surf Raiders' groovy "Wave Walk'n'" is a great choice for the style of The Hodaddys. The swimming whammy and gentle pace are just what they need. Mr. Moto Surf (Instrumental) This is a nice wet version of Paul Johnson's "Mr. Moto" with bass added. One guitar seems to work pretty well here. Very nice. Dawn Patrol Surf (Instrumental) The Deuce Coupes ' "Dawn Patrol" is an easy moving cover that suits The Hodaddys very well. The warm melody and sense of travel are nicely portrayed in their reverby sound. The lead guitar circles across the panoramic spectrum in the break. The Wedge Surf (Instrumental) Covering Dick Dale and his Del-tones' version of Al Hazan's "The Wedge," the boys deliver a solid version with shouts and all. Taco Wagon Surf (Instrumental) This is a reverby cover of The De-Fenders' song, with a solid surf feeling and cool percussion. It's a very tasteful version. Calhoun Surf Surf (Instrumental) A lot of bands cover this, the first song Danny Amis ever wrote. This is more like the Los Straitjackets version than the Overtones' original. Fluid and fun. Skin Diver Surf (Instrumental) This is a slightly softer version of t De-Fenders' "Skin Diver," with richer reverb. The song flows very well, and the quick little guitar sequences are very nicely done. Nice to see it covered. Burnin' Rubber Surf (Instrumental) Jim Fuller's "Burnin' Rubber" is nicely done here. The bassiness does take away some of the energy. That aside, this is an excellent choice to cover, and is pretty friendly. A/A Fueler Surf (Instrumental) "A/A Fueler" is fun instro with a cycling riff and splashy tone. The energy is good despite the lead being really low in the mix. A better mix would definitely bring another star. Nite Surfer Surf (Instrumental) The Deuce Coupes' "Nite Surfer" is a wonderful choice. The galloping rhythm and liquid guitar as a great combination. Quite cool! Namu Surf (Instrumental) "Namu" is a surf romp with a charging melody and sparkling edge. The false stops are cool, and spunk evident everywhere. Storm Dancer Surf (Instrumental) Jon and the Nightriders' "Storm Dancer" starts with a chord and a reverb crash, and quickly pounds into a spirited cover. Damn, I sure wish this sounded better. Superb energy and chemistry. Rumblin' Rod Surf (Instrumental) "Rumblin' Rod" is a somewhat threatening song with healthy energy and power. Great picking and power. Mr. Rebel Surf (Instrumental) Arranged like Eddie and the Showmen's single, this performance of "Mr. Rebel" is really cool. Excellent double picking. Soul Surfer Surf (Instrumental) Johnny Sudetta's sultry groove is washed in reverb and surf soul. Sparkling double picked bridges and excellent chemistry. A Shot In The Dark Surf (Instrumental) A pleasant cover of Henry Mancini's "A Shot In The Dark" gets extra coolness from reverb. Fiero Surf (Instrumental) This is a spirited cover of The Fireballs' "Fiero," which is very reverent and tight. Nicely done in a wetter reproduction sort of way. Surfin' With The Sharks Surf (Instrumental) This is a totally cool original with a great moody melody and fast moving energy. Wonderful double picked sections and glissandos and sparkle. Vaporizer Surf (Instrumental) This is a stompy number with a sort of frat rock feel. dark and moody and riff-centric, with great drums. Fun and cool. Surf Trashed Surf (Instrumental) Great drums a la "Surf Beat" drive this slightly dark number. It's heavy and spunky and circular, with a tribal beat and primal energy. Que Honda Surf (Instrumental) This is a spunky take on Satan's Pilgrims' "Que Honda." Very cool energy and pumped party stompin' style. Blue Venus Surf (Instrumental) This is recorded very differently (probably not really live), in stereo, and with sultry tone. "Blue Venus" moves slowly and romantically, with grand dripping reverb, and loud Fender tone. Very nice track.

Ocasek's early 1976 [band], Cap'n Swing, thoroughly impressed Boston DJ Maxanne Sartori. In her two p.m. to six p.m. shift on WBCN-FM, Sartori had helped break Aerosmith, and she consistently boosted area bands. In this case, she was swayed when she heard Cap'n Swing at a station-sponsored Newbury Street Music Fair. "They were amazing!" she recalls. "Here was this band I'd never heard of, that sounded like a cross between Roxy Music and Steely Dan." Sartori began to play Cap'n Swing demos on her show; the local press was also enthusiastic.

Hodaddy's Hang Out
BandsThis item was submitted by daddyg.

Firetrap Studio is a compound at Surfside 55 Headquarters in St Petersburg Florida where the Hodaddy's work their magic, rehearse, record, plot, plan, hang out, and restore antique autos and boats. There is always something interesting happening down at the Firetrap. King Pompano & Daddy G are avid fishermen and can be found at Jungle Prada quite often or maybe around 'ol Hurricane Hole or out in in Tampa bay waters going for the big fish. the Hodad bus takes up some space at the compound as well as Kneejerks' mgbgt and 1939 Ford tudor projects. he has had the '39 for some 28 odd years and the MG for about 12 years now. During the day we take breaks with lemonade on the rope tire swing hanging off the old florida laurel oak tree out front. Only 22 feet above sea level is Surfside Headquarters.
