Blue Wave Theory is an American instrumental rock band formed in 2007 in southern New Jersey. The group's sound is rooted in instrumental surf music of the 1960's, but delves into many genres including elements of punk, garage, progressive rock, and psychedelic space rock.
An accomplished trio of musicians whose versatility is as broad as their personal backgrounds with decades of musical influence, ranging from Dick Dale and Link Wray, to the progressive rock of King Crimson and psychedelic surf of The Mermen. Blue Wave Theory is also inspired by a broad resume of their other successful independent musical ventures.
The band's music is entirely instrumental and always performed in a classic power trio format: guitar (Steve Rabeler), bass (Kevin Stamper), and drums (Rob Wolleben ). The insistence for each musician in this trio to be true to their personal styling and talent gives Blue Wave Theory a distinctive stamp of uniqueness and creativity. The BWT sound is rockin', blood pressure risin', and chillin' enjoyment for all music lovers.
Blue Wave Theory and their hectic eclectic brand of instrumental surf rock has performed at some of the coolest venues on the East Coast, such as Otto's Shrunken Head in New York City, and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. The band has been privelged to share the stage with some of the finest surf bands in the northeast, including Mister Neutron, The Supertones, and The Octomen.
Oh, and a good authority says the band has an affinity for blueberries, ring-tailed lemurs and lots of chocolate...
