“An absolutely fantastic documentary hands down! I think there is something to learn even if you are well versed in surf music or a newb to the scene. “
“I watched “Reverb Junkies” again last night. I went to a party yesterday and folks were talking about it. Spending time with friends makes me realize how awesome the film is. It demonstrates the core of the genre and the people involved. I can clearly see what a tight-knit community it truly is in this film. Thank you for the hard work! The film is like a segment of time in my life, captured forever in one bitchin’ documentary!”
Baron Shimmy Shivers, The Ghastly Ones
“Tip of the hat to Steve Seagren… great job on REVERB JUNKIES! I enjoyed it a lot! Captures what’s happening and the cast of characters in this world perfectly!”
Lorenzo Valdambrini, Surfer Joe & His Boss Combo and The Wadadli Riders
“…It shows quickly and easily how this music scene works around the world, collecting opinions and points of view, sometimes different one from the other, but everyone is giving his idea from his own personal perspective… The movie does NOT want to tell how this music was born and why, it just tells what it is NOW and how much LOVE there is around it. I like “Reverb Junkies” and I highly recommend everybody to see it!”
Sandy ("Oceana") of 9th Wave & NESMA HQ
“Although there are a lot of recordings of surf bands in the world (yay!), there are not a lot of books or films or documentaries about the genre. This is a new one, and a good one. I highly recommend getting & collecting a copy for your surf-abilia files”.
Jason Lee, The R.I.P.tides
“This movie is the Bomb man! Amazing job”
Ivan Pongracic, The Madeira and The Space Cossacks
“Thanks to Steve for this wonderful labor of love. I’d say you captured the scene pretty much perfectly, in all its aspects. Sometimes maybe a bit too perfectly… However, it’s really a great doc, and I know that when I put it on in 25 years I will be amazed at all the memories of so many good friends and what a great, great time we had. It captures this moment in this community, and I for one am very grateful, Steve.”
Trey Rhodes, Surfside IV
“I dug this time-capsule of a film called “Reverb Junkies” and recommend it highly for all surf music nuts like myself. It encapsulates much of the goings-on during the 2010 and 2011 Surf Guitar 101 Conventions and what looks like Tiki Oasis, to boot. The footage is a bit raw around the edges in the same way that the cool underground music documentaries were back in the day…and this style suits the music very well, I think. It’s a joyful, warts-and-all,…
“WOW WHAT AN AWESOME FILM!!! I got to see it for the first time yesterday and I really really enjoyed it. Steve & crew did an excellent job.”
“I dont cuss much ever… but Reverb Junkies is FUCKING AWESOME !!!!!”
