The Pyronauts will host a rockin’ surf guitar night featuring guitar legend Dick Dale Saturday, Jan. 21, at the Auburn Event Center, 145 Elm Ave., Auburn. Doors open at 7 p.m.; the show begins at 8 p.m.
Relay for Life will hold a raffle at the concert for a signature Dale acoustic guitar. Raffle proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society. The guitar was donated by Encore Music. Dale is a cancer survivor; read his story at www.dickdale.com/ddcancer.html.
Dale, the inventor of the surf guitar sound, got his start in the late 1950s, found fame in the early 1960s, had a major comeback in the early ’90s and is still going strong today. His son, Jimmy Dale, will join him, playing drums for the Dick Dale Band.
This will be Dale’s third appearance in Auburn and the 15th time the Pyronauts have opened for their hero – an ultimate honor. Both groups look forward to providing a fun-filled evening of music at the Auburn Event Center.
All ages welcome. Tickets cost $20 in advance; $25 at the door and are available at Dimple Records, Liquor Outlet, Cherry Records, Briar Patch, Encore Music and Lake of the Pines Music.
