“SURFBEAT”
The Origins of Surf Music
Featuring Randy Nauert, legendary bass player of "The Challengers," America's Original Surf Band.

Join Randy as he weaves a tale tracing the invention of “Surf Music” in the early 1960s when the electric bass guitar replaced the traditional stand-up bass, and heavy lead and rhythm guitar riffs combined to create the signature sound of a new style of dance music emerging along the Southern California Coast, identifying with and celebrating the emerging “Surfing Craze.”

Randy and The Challengers were at the vanguard of the surf music scene, recording 28 albums between 1962 and ’66. They performed alongside a who’s who of Surf Music artists from Dick Dale to the Beach Boys, and also served as studio musicians and backup band for such luminaries as Chuck Berry, Little Richard, the Righteous Brothers, Sonny and Cher and more.

Randy and The Challengers have been nominated to the International Surfing Hall of Fame in Oceanside, California, for their contributions to this very special genre of music. Randy has spent a lifetime in the music/ motion picture/television world, and continues to celebrate his passion for the “Surfbeat” from his home in Malibu.
