I’m happy to announce that I’ll be the featured artist at the Surfer Joe Summer Festival 2023 for the 15th Edition of the largest gathering of surf music fans in the world. Surfer Joe is a 4-day immersion into the world of instrumental surf music with an intense program of concerts, seminars and various attractions, all happening mere steps away from the Mediterranean Sea along the beautiful coast of Tuscany.
For his upcoming feature at the Surfer Joe Festival, Chuck will be showing affordable and accessible Old School posters, and surprises. You will find posters popular with rockers: Joe Strummer, The Who, Jello Biafra, Mudhoney, Queens of the Stone Age, Melvins, Rancid, Anthrax, Danzig, Devo, Black Sabbath, Tease-o-rama, Tiki Art, and other classics from Sperry’s archive.
In addition, Chuck will be presenting his 750 page, career spanning book, “Color x Color, The Sperry Poster Archive 1980-2020” an extensive collection of his world-famous rock posters.
