Band of Frequencies – The Right Kind of Freqs
BAND OF FREQUENCIES – Caring for the future of our ocean mammals (Cetaceans)
On October 1, 2011 Band of Frequencies will embark on a month long voyage down the Californian coast with free surfer/environmentalist Dave Rastovich and his non-profit organization Surfers for Cetaceans (S4C).
OFA caught up with the band at Joe’s Waterhole for their brilliant psychedelia, roots, rock and soul fund raising gig Friday, September 23.
Their journey, called Transparent Sea USA, involves sailing kayaks from Santa Barbara to Mexico with an entourage of surfers, environmentalists, artists and musicians travelling the coastline as they follow the annual migration of Grey Whales. Along the way they will all be involved in daily beach clean ups, performing live music at community events and sharing information to highlight the plight of marine mammals (Cetaceans) and relevant coastal environment issues.
Band of Frequencies lead singer and guitarist Sol Carroll said as about getting communities involved in protecting their own environment.
On the way the crew will come to port for four major regional events. Each night they will host a screening of Â Minds in The Water documentary, followed by Band of Frequencies live performances, art shows & auctions and in support of Surfer’s for Cetaceans and other ocean minded charities.
If you are passionate about the oceans future (and your own), then check out www.s4cglobal.org they would love your support.
Band of Frequencies has also recently provided music for a powerful indigenous documentary, Our Generation, about the oldest culture in the world and their fight for survival.
We are stoked to be a part of the film, we’re massive fans of the film and full supporters of what they are doing, said Sol.

Band of Frequencies return home mid December to expand our minds once again, with the release of their new single ‘All I’ve Found‘ sporting a film clip featuring surf legend George Greenough. The release will coincide with their performance at Woodford Folk Festival 2011. Sneak peek here.
Safe travels guys! We all look forward to sharing in your sounds and creativity soon.
