Biography

Guitarist Jerry Gordon initially formed The Torquays in Kansas in 1964! By the late 90s, it was time for the band to regroup. Gordon brought together three other musicians who had collectively played with rock instrumental artists such as Dick Dale and the Del-tones, The Lively Ones, The Goofy Foots, Nokie Edwards of The Ventures, and George Tomsco of The Fireballs. Gordon was recently replaced with guitarist Armin Brown. Together with Steve Soest, Duff Paulsen, and Don Parra, the band has turned into one of the best and most traditional sounding surf instrumental bands in recent years. With their matching outfits, and matching guitars and amps (all vintage gear), The Torquays capture the sight, sound, drive, and excitement of a musical era that is as fresh today as it was in the days of hot rods, hodads, greasers, and gremmies
