“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.
Whorehay Spahn, Radio Free Bakersfield
“Good footage, good editing, good pace. Nice work.”
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!”
Timothy C. Sullivan, The Supertones
“Just watched it. This is a must see for every one. It’s really our story. Lots of really great interviews…and lots of great music. I give it five stars “
“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!”
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.”
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!”
Brian Neal, Founder - Surf Guitar101.com
“I watched it with the whole family plus my mom & dad, and I enjoyed the hell out of it. Of course I am honored that SG101 was mentioned and seeing the convention coverage made me very happy … Thanks so much Steve! Great job!”
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”.
"Reverb Junkies" screening in Mexico coming soon!
The film will be shown on November 8, 2014 as part of the Abierto de Surf Instrumental 2014 .
