The Dick Dale Phenomenon. His style is something different and unique. Since his first appearances Balboa, Ca. at the
famed Rendezvous Ballroom, he has set and broken attendance records everywhere he's performed. His
appearances at the Rendezvous Ballroom broke every existing record for the Ballroom by drawing capacity crowds of
over four thousand screaming dancing fans every weekend each night down on the Balboa peninsula.

Dick 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.

Dick Dale has been called one of the hardest working men in show business. In the past five years he has maintained
a heavy concert tour and public appearance schedule throughout the world. Focusing in Europe, Australia, Japan,
Canada, South America and the U.S.

Dick Dale was the first person to create the surf music sound. The first to take a sport and develop a music for it. He
was also the first to have more than one record on the Top Ten charts at one time, and also to have five songs from a
single album on the charts at once. He was first to sell out the Los Angeles sports arena.
