NESMA, which stands for North East Surf Music Alliance, is the glue that holds the surf scene in the northeast U.S. together. This group of 70+ dedicated surf bands show the kind of cooperative spirit that makes this world a better place - and they know how to throw a heck of a great party, too! Look up the other CT surf bands, including 9th Wave, The Clams, The Crustaceans, and Commercial Interruption.

Surf Guitar 101 - All you need to know about people, equipment, shows, bands, etc., is available here. (Just don't ask what's the best guitar/amp for surf!) International community of like-minded surf music geeks. There's even an annual compilation of member-submitted music available for download. Tom and/or the full Aquatudes have contributed songs from 2006 through 2010; and again in 2014.

Check out the Connecticut chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, an organization dedicated to the preservation of our beaches and waterways.

The Dirt Salon was the home venue for The Aquatudes from 2011-2018. Located in the Parkville section of Hartford, it was part of the creative things that are still happening and growing in that part of town.
