Biography

     Blue Wave Theory is an American instrumental rock band formed in 2007 in
Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The group's sound is rooted in surf music of
the 1960s, but often incorporates elements of other genres including
reggae, punk rock, and progressive rock. An accomplished group of
musicians whose versatility is as broad as their personal backgrounds
with decades of musical influence,
ranging from Dick Dale, Link Wray, Los Straitjackets, Laika & the
Cosmonauts, along with the funk of Dennis Coffey and psychedelic surf of
The Mermen. The band's music is entirely instrumental with Steve
Rabeler on guitar, Kevin Stamper on bass, and Rob Wolleben on drums.
Guitarist Bob Trimble recently joined forces with the band for live
shows and recordings, transforming the power trio into a power quartet!
The insistence for each musician in this trio to keep true to their
personal styling and inspiration gives Blue Wave Theory a distinctive
stamp of uniqueness and creativity.

     Blue Wave Theory and their hectic
eclectic brand of instrumental surf rock has shared the stage with
guitar heroes Dick Dale and Gary Hoey, along with some of the finest
east coast surf bands including Mister Neutron, The Coffin Daggers, The
Supertones and The Octomen. The band has performed at some of the
coolest music venues in Philadelphia, New York City, and New Jersey
including the Sellersville Theater, World Cafe Live, The North Star Bar,
The Record Collector, The Rotunda, and Otto’s Shrunken Head. In
addition, Blue Wave Theory plays at several east coast summer festivals
including Art of Surfing Festival, Asbury Park Surf Music Festival,
Bethlehem Musikfest, Twangstock, and Surfapalooza.

     Blue Wave Theory's eponymous
debut album was released on Magnatune Records in 2010. The second album
"Superstorm" was released in 2013. Individual Blue Wave Theory songs
have appeared on instrumental surf compilation albums including "The
Continental Magazine #23" (2015), "Surfin' Jack Flash" (2014), “Radical
Waves” (2012), and “Off the Deep End” (2011). Blue Wave Theory's music
