The Weedline Band streamed a live performance from Echo Beach Studios for our inaugural 2014 season kick-off to Echo Beach Surf Report Presents: Live at Echo Beach!
Tune in here on to watch the archived performance from Saturday, October 25th at 2:00PM EST. The band played all original material and sounded great!. We didn’t have too many hiccups (sorry about the mono sound. Future shows will be in stereo.) and we had people tuning in from all over the world. As part of our effort to support original songwriting and music in our groovy tropical locale, highlights from the show will be posted on Youtube and Vimeo, so keep an eye out in the coming weeks.
The Weedline Band members are :
Mark Zaden – Guitar and Vocals
Dave Oechsle – Guitar and Vocals
Eddie Garczyk – Drums
Ed Groblewski – Bass
The band formed in 2009 and features Mark Zaden’s singing and songwriting influenced by his experiences growing up in South Florida. Mark shared his thoughts on the songs the band performed throughout the show and we’ll be posting an after show interview here soon, so be sure to tune back in.

In our effort to add our voice to the promotion of original music and art, we here at the Echo Beach Surf Report kicked off our inaugural “Live at Echo Beach” in studio performance last month with Bryce Allyn from Boxelder and more recently B-Liminal. He treated us to two of his recent compositions “Amends” and “In Time”. Although he’s been playing an acoustic solo set recently, a few friends dropped in to join us for the performance. Sarah Peak on keys and vocals, Ryan Weidenfeld on the cajon, and Jett Beres of Sister Hazel on bass. You can watch the performance here or on our YouTube channel, Echo Beach TV.
With an inspiring back story, Bryce captured his audience far before the first strum of his guitar. The catchy lyrics and melodic instrumentals had us dancing in our seats. OK maybe 1 or 2 of us were doing the faux acid dance as well. Time to get Bryce booked on some festivals! Each artist added a bit of their own style to the music. Sarah’s vocal accompaniment really brought an extra dimension to the songs. With a repertoire such as Bryces’ many may be curious to see if he can transition to solo artist. No worries mon. If the performance at Echo Beach is any indication, those familiar with his previous work won’t be disappointed by what his solo career has in store.
Share it with your friends if you like it and let us know if there is someone you’d like to see on future shows. In the future we’ll be highlighting area musicians and those passing through this fine fair part of Florida.
