Guitar Legend Dick Dale with Creem Circus
The Ardmore Music Hall
23 East Lancaster Ave
Ardmore, PA, 19003DICK DALEDick Dale invented surf music in the 1950's. Not the '60's as is commonly believed. He was given the title "King of the Surf Guitar" by his fellow surfers with whom he surfed with from sun-up to sun-down. He met Leo Fender the guitar and amplifier Guru and Leo asked Dale to play his newly creation, the Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The minute Dale picked up the guitar, Leo Fender broke into uncontrolled laughter and disbelief, he was watching Dale play a right handed guitar upside down and backwards, Dale was playing a right handed guitar left handed and changing the chords in his head then transposing the chords to his hands to create a sound never heard before.CREEM CIRCUSDo you know who "your favorite band's favorite band" is? It's probably the most glamtastic band to come out since BOWIE wiped the lighting bolt off his face. Creem Circus is what they call themselves (after their two favorite 70's rock magazines, of course...but you knew that)!
Hear them and you will hear original tunes with riffs and choruses that rocket you back to 1974. See them and you will be blinded by the sequins glued to the sides of their homemade platform shoes and glitter bug-eyed glasses. Meet them and you will feel the inexplicable urge to run away with the Circus! The Creem Circus!
