Dick Dale 

When: Sun., April 26, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $25-$30
“King of the Surf Guitar” Dick Dale revolutionized the sound and equipment for generations of power players in the ’50s. Leo Fender gave Dale his new invention the Stratocaster to try. Dale’s subsequent use of the guitar and Fender amp to recreate jazz drummer Gene Krupa’s tribal rhythms and the sounds of the surf gave birth to a beefed-up speaker and transformer for the Fender Single Showman Amp. It’s familiar to legions of heavy metal headbangers. Dale’s trademark Fender Tank Reverb also enabled a long line of rockers to emulate his shimmery guitar tone and rich, sustained vocals. The legend offers this live demonstration. —Grant Britt
