Aloha!Welcome to Surfdog, where we live and breathe our passion for music, in our tropical bungalows by the beach! Our company was established in 1985, when it all started with Dave Kaplan opening the doors to the company's first division: Dave Kaplan Management. Soon thereafter came Surfdog Records, a wholly-owned independent record label, along with Surfdog Music Publishing & Licensing, Surfdog Entertainment Marketing and Surfdog’s Java Hut, all located in the slice of heaven called Encinitas, CA.

Our company’s deep love for music spans rock, rockabilly, big band swing, soul, reggae, punk, folk, comedy and, in the early years, even a release of crazy-cosmic-galactic-rock n' roll by Harry Perry (the roller-skating/turbaned Venice Beach icon!). We are driven by real musicians/artists with passion and soul, regardless of musical style; it just needs to hit you in the heart, gut, head, or all three. But don’t let our casual, unassuming nature fool you. We are relentless in our pursuit of excellence for our artists and clients. And we release music we love and want to share with the world.

Surfdog has released over 100 albums by artists such as Brian Setzer, Stray Cats, Joss Stone, Dave Stewart, Glen Campbell, Butthole Surfers, Slightly Stoopid, Richard Cheese, Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, Gary Hoey and many more. We have also released several soundtrack albums, including "The Endless Summer II" and "Step Into Liquid." Surfdog artists’ music has been prominently featured in movies (Puss In Boots, Elf, Madagascar, Mission Impossible, Monsters vs. Aliens, etc), TV shows (American Idol, Ellen, Dancing With The Stars, Glee, ER, Scrubs, etc), plus major national commercials (Ford Lincoln-Mercury, Ashton Kutcher’s Nikon, Hallmark, etc).

We are also very proud to be an ocean-conscious label and our three MOM: Music For Mother Ocean releases helped us contribute some of the largest donations in Surfrider Foundation's history. For the MOM albums, Surfdog assembled the biggest names in music, including Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam, Sublime, James Taylor, Rage Against the Machine, Snoop Dogg, Jimmy Buffett, No Doubt and many more, to gain worldwide attention for these renowned CD's as well as for the protection and preservation of our planet's oceans.

Our classic Surfdog "stick-guy," along with our tropical, tiki-influenced office complex near the cliffs of the world-class wave at Swami's, help keep us sane and grounded in this wild ride called the entertainment business. Beware…if we're ever out at a "board meeting" and the surf is good, you’ll know what we’re really up to! And, if you’re ever in the San Diego area, come by to check out our local hang-out, Surfdog's Java Hut on Coast Highway 101, serving up killer smoothies, coffee, and grub!!

Brian Setzer is one of those wild geniuses who keeps the Earth properly spinning on its axis – a consistent institution who you can count on while pretty much everything else comes and goes. If nothing else, he might be saving American history from the scorch of its own warped magnifying glass memory. We’ve screwed up the 50’s – reduced it into one giant goof cartoon of crummy over-fattening food, leather jackets and endless sock hops. And the 80’s showed up more or less mangled on arrival. But Brian Setzer, a punk rocker grinning across a gorgeous Gretsch splashed through the neon of the 80’s scene with a sound that channeled the earliest primal yelps of rock n’ roll. Then in the 90's when every guy within a fedora’s throw of Hollywood wanted to form a swing band, Setzer massed a bloody orchestra and launched a blistering assault on all the zoot-suited mannequins cruising the scene. With an astonishing consistency and quality of output, an honest reverence for the American musical tradition and an idiosyncratic swagger that is itself the kind of brand that defies all contrivance, Brian’s on that short list alongside guys like Billy Gibbons, Jeff Beck, or, hell, Hendrix who inhabit their own crazy little islands where the waves around them may change direction but the guitar licks are scorching, the drinks stay cold and the circle remains unbroken.

Brian Setzer's smash hit "Rockabilly Riot!" tour saw him rock four different continents: Europe, North America, Japan, and Australia! We took the very best from every show to put together this amazing album! It's an all-out assault. An overcharged and thrilling attack of American rock n’ roll. This lineup includes two (YES TWO!) slappin’ stand-up bassists (each bringing some extra thump to the party,) two (YES TWO!) drummers, one being none other than Stray Cat Slim Jim Phantom, and an on-fire boogie-woogie piano.
