“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”
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!”
Wally Farkas, Molken Music
“For me, there are so many highlights in this movie…I loved the editing and cinematography, especially seeing Insect Surfer David Arnson cartwheeling across the floor. Also, Daikaiju’s performance was an intense climax to “Reverb Junkies”…as riveting as the bull sacrifice ending of ‘Apocalypse Now’.”
“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.
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!”
Big Wave Dave Becker, The Aquamarines
“One thing that people will get from this enlightening new Rock Doc movie is how inclusive and accessible the “family of Surf” is on a worldwide basis. From fan to superstar and friends around the world , there is only one degree of separation to those who have been gripped by the magic gravitational pull of Surf. And if you’re in the vortex, you are a “Junkie” and NEED this fix. ENJOY!”
Michele Del Ray, Modern Nostalgia on Etsy
“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. “
Cousin Mary, KFJC
“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.”
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 “
"Reverb Junkies" screened in Mexico!
