Benefit Concert Hosted By Kelly Slater & Friends + The Max Weinberg Experience
Taking Back Sunday
"I grew up on the east coast listening to the music of my parent's generation ... country, folk, singer songwriter type stuff. Most of it I swore I hated, but some of it has stuck with me forever," says Kelly Slater, 10x ASP World Champion.
"I've been lucky enough to meet a lot of artists I knew through our vinyl records and became good friends with a couple. We've got a surprise guest playing this year with a few guest appearances thrown in. I think the event is gonna be a really fun night for everybody and something I haven't experienced before."
