The Blair - Pongracic Band

The Blair-Pongracic Band are four guys with impressive musical resumes from the contemporary surf instrumental scene. Led by guitarists John Blair from Jon & The Nightriders and Ivan Pongracic from The Madeira and The Space Cossacks, The Blair-Pongracic band was formed in 2015 for a short tour of Italy and Spain. Their appearance at the Surfer Joe Summer Music Festival in Livorno, Italy, led the event promoter to report, “It is without any doubt that the highlight of the festival was the Blair-Pongracic Band...Ivan and John managed to put together a superb show, very heavy, direct, powerful, playing many songs that people in the surf community remember and appreciate." With over 17 combined LPs and CDs from Blair and Pongracic’s respective bands, there is plenty of material to fuel a strong, combined setlist. They are joined by drummer Dane Carter (also from The Madeira) and Jeremy DeHart (from The Aqualads and The Monterreys) on bass guitar. In June, lucky fans from Georgia to Indiana will have the opportunity to witness the power of The Blair-Pongracic Band as they head out on a nine-city tour.

Atomic Mosquitos

Atomic Mosquitos

Atomic Mosquitos have been buzzing around the DC/VA/Baltimore area since 2001. Their unique brand of Surf/Instrumental Rock with a theremin can be best described as Link Wray, the Ventures and Dick Dale in a blender hurling through outer space.
