“…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!”
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’.”
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. “
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.”
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.”
“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.
“The film “Reverb Junkies” really explains the new breed and the breeds that came before it very succinctly, plus the music is great throughout…”
“This film IS surf music!’ “
