“When I tell people that I play surf music on the radio, sometimes I get blank stares or “oh, you mean that stuff from the 1960′s?” The documentary film “Reverb Junkies” gives an emphatic answer! It interweaves great live band performances and interviews with musicians and fans who love this instrumental music. In the process, we feel the exuberance and affection that exists in today’s surf music community.”
“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!”
“Reverb Junkies” rocks with the rush of a riff, rolls and pushes and pulls like the tides. It’s a fun ride that never ends and always crests.

“…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!”

“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. “
