Dawn Patrol grew out of a love for the innovative Surf music of the 1960's. Close friends for decades, and having played together in various bands, Karl, Tim, John and Ted got together in 2012 and formed Dawn Patrol.
The initial focus was on the Surf classics – hits made famous by the Shadows, the Atlantics, the Ventures, Dick Dale, and others. However, so many great songs of the '60s seemed to be perfect for surf-style treatment, and they soon created a catalog of innovative instrumentals.
Next came several new original songs, all with driving surf-sensibility and creativity. From Karl's double-picking, Tim's sweeping reverb, John's precise rhythm, and Ted's parrot-perched bass, Dawn Patrol's music takes you back to an age when boards were long, bikinis were short, and the music made everything right. Surf's up!
"Wow, you guys were great! Thanks for entertaining the crowd with such great songs at our fundraiser".
