Rockabilly music and Surf bands!
Now we take you back to those memorable days of sand, waves - and classic surf & rockabilly music!
Our Surf & Turf series celebrates with a rockabilly band and an uptempo surf band, and contrasts them in a cool concert setting at Campus JAX in Newport Beach:
The Altar Billies and the Tourmaliners!
At least once a month, fans of both genres can get together and find common ground as the bands perform live onstage with a dance floor, a full menu - and a full bar.
Best of all, it is on a Sunday evening - so you have nothing to keep you from enjoying your kind of music.
