Main Event Wednesday-Dick Dale
Several months ago, the owner of Trader Lee’s Bar, on the corner of Routes 611 and 50 in West Ocean City, contacted Dale about booking a show. Since then, Dick and his 19-year-old son, Jimmy, have toured the United States. This Ocean City show will be their 22nd stop on a tour of 24 stops consecutively.
In the ‘60’s Dale was blowing up amplifiers, getting bigger ones, stinging his left-handed guitar upside down, and inventing his own reverb units. After battling cancer in 2008, Dale is healthy and back in the guitar-ripping scene. At the age of 74, the California resident is still playing heavy, percussive rock music and living the surf lifestyle. Rumor has it that Dale still uses the same 100-watt guitar amp from 1965 and his original reverb unit when he tours.
Come to Trader Lee’s on Wednesday, October 26th to check out this surf rock legend. You can save your spot at the show by stopping by Trader Lee’s in advance and adding your name to the quickly growing admittance list or by calling 410-213-2000. Tickets are $50 in advance, or $50 at the door. The show is from 6:30 – 11 pm. Your best bet is to play it safe, hand them fifty bucks, etch your name on the Trader Lee’s list, and get ready for a great show on the 26th.
Next, we’re gearing up for Halloween fun for next weekend! Keep checking back for updates in the social scene.
