Smooth surfing sounds for summer at Bond University

Legendary surf guitarist Martin Cilia will set the tone for summer with a free performance on November 27, 2011 at Bond University.

Sunset drinks and classic surf rock hits are on the cards for the final instalment of this year’s Live at Bond music series and the afternoon’s program is packed with fun for all ages.

Performing surf rock songs including tracks from his latest solo album Surfersaurus, Martin said he is looking forward  to sharing some of his new tunes with the audience.

“I wanted to breathe new life into these great vintage surf rock tunes and give them my sound while still retaining the classic essence of the ‘known’ versions,” said Martin.

“I also wanted to introduce them to an audience that may have missed them the first time around.

“Bond University is an ideal location to perform - only minutes away from the beach, not to mention a spectacular outdoor performance area; this gig will be an excellent way to celebrate the start of summer.”

In line with the theme the audience is invited to dress in retro beach style and soak up the warm summer weather on the campus. Surf World Gold Coast will be putting on an exhibition and attendees will be able to peruse a collection of vintage cars including an original 1940 woody car, a1962 kombi van and a 1958 Holden station wagon.

The afternoon will kick off at 3pm with supporting act Bond University student Tom Webster performing acoustic covers. Free parking is available on campus and food and drinks will be available for purchase. In the case of wet weather the event will be moved to the nearby Princeton Ballroom, in the University Centre.
