Chad Shivers and the Silent Knights has performed the Ventures Christmas Album, and the second for the Beach Boys Christmas Album. Historically the show has been held at the Earl in Atlanta but we are extremely excited to bring it to the Southern Surf Stomp at Kavarna this year. This has become a special event for all of us and we look forward to it all year long. Of course we will be joined by our Jingle Belle dancers as well.

Chad Shivers (MOONBASE, The Mystery Men?, Bicycle Eaters) - lead guitar, vocals
"Little Saint" Nick Bazemore - lead vocals, guitar
David Northrip (the Fugitives) - vocals, guitar
Eric "The Talent" Balint (MOONBASE, Bicycle Eaters) - bells, percussion, keys
Matt Steadman - bass guitar
Sonny Harding (MOONBASE) - drums
The Jingle Belle dancers are Jessica Shivers (aka "Cherry") and Morgan "Mo" Bazemore.
Check out last year's performance:
Caroline and the Ramblers is Atlanta's best roots group specializing in rockabilly, country, early rock 'n' roll, and blues. Caroline commands audiences with her powerful voice, is a staple in Atlanta's music community, and is a HUGE supporter of surf music having even performed at Douglasville Surf Fest. Her backing band The Ramblers are all seasoned veterans and wildly talented instrumentalists. Together they write absolutely wonderful songs and really know how to put on a great show.
Also joining the show will be the Fringe Factory DJ's, which spin the best in garage, punk, psych, soul, and wild rock 'n' roll. The trio of Vikki Vaden, Glynis Ward, and Richard Whig really do it all from radio, live performance, as well as even hosting their own shows. Up until recently they could be heard on AM1690 Atlanta and are currently on WFMU's Rock 'n' Soul Ichiban Wednesdays at 8pm.
