“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!”

“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.”
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”.
“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!”
Jason Lee, The R.I.P.tides
“This movie is the Bomb man! Amazing job”
“The film “Reverb Junkies” really explains the new breed and the breeds that came before it very succinctly, plus the music is great throughout…”
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!”
“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.”
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.”
“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.
"Reverb Junkies" screened in Mexico!
The film was shown on November 8, 2014 as part of the Abierto de Surf Instrumental 2014 .
