The Mystery Men? are the enigmatic figures of instrumental surf. Frenetic at times, dark and moody at others, the 5 piece conundrum takes you on a reverb drenched journey through the shadows. Straddling the threshold of old and new, The Mystery Men? take elements of spy music, spaghetti western, a small hint of metal and blend them with the sensibilities of the traditional surf genre.
The Frigidaires are the Southeast's premier surf/hot rod combo, performing vocal and instrumental hits plus originals. Music for yesterday, today, and tomorrow! The Frigidaires have performed to sold out audiences throughout the Southeast for over a decade. We believe our mix of 60's inspired vocal pop and instrumental surf (with maybe a few surprises thrown in) will be a nice addition to an already exceptional shindig!
