Charlie Does Surf

KELP (White Riot)

Paul Fritz - guitar
Todd Buranen - bass
Sam Frankeberger - drums

Santa Barbara's KELP play modern surf music and traditional classics from the heyday of the surf scene. Coming out of the garage above Rincon Point in April, 1996, Kelp has played up and down the California Coast from San Diego to San Francisco.

The band is a third-wave trio consisting of Paul Fritz on guitar, Todd Buranen on bass and Sam Frankeberger on drums. Like the mix of songs, a mix of traditional spring reverb with modern digital enhancements and stereo amplification gives Kelp a big and thoroughly modern sound. Influences range from the inimitable Dick Dale and Paul Johnson to modern bands such as The Insect Surfers, The Mermen and Savage Republic.
