Straight out of the dusty hell of some forgotten border town, Tijuana Surf, the R&B Surf Soul combo that exceeds the sound barrier of groove and swing.
Listen, but don’t be afraid - side effects may be compulsive moving of the hips and gyrations.
Lead by vocalist and twin lead guitarist Jason Goody Goodman straight from New Orleans, combined with Italian brothers Paul Vanzella on Bass & Frank Vanzella on drums from Melbourne as the rhythm section, with Pete Pistola Andrews on lead and rhythm guitar, watch out for this combo of sound and enigmatic appeal.
Playing since 2014, this intriguing group of seasoned musicians, mix up styles with great musical influences, such as Link Wray, Dick Dale, Sir Douglas Quintet, Jimmy Smith & John Barry, which have helped influence Tijuana surfs combination of surf instrumentals along with 1950`s & 1960`s rhythm & blues & rock`n`roll.
"The Freestylers are the dancefloor sensation of the new millennium, a fast moving, electro-rocking monster movie that is going to hit your house like a tidal wave, and wash all your preconceptions out of the door.
When they play live, there’s up to twelve of them on the stage alone, guitars and a full rhythm section, DJ Jay-Rock, crowd pleasers MC Tenor Fly, MC Navigator and new vocalist Valerie M, a breathtaking whirl of sound and vision which leaves the audience as exhausted as the band. In fact, the dance is almost as important to the Freestylers as the music, and while break beats have been threatening to return to the dancefloor for years, the Freestylers are the first band to actually do something about it and were promptly proclaimed Best Band at the 1998 Muzik Magazine Awards"
