Tom Curren Performing Live In Bali This Saturday

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 23 August, 2016 - Three-time world champion and surfing icon Tom Curren will play a live concert this Saturday (Aug 27) at the luxurious Uluwatu Surf Villas in Bali. Tickets are still available for this once-in-a-lifetime show. 

All proceeds from the concert will help fund Project Clean Uluwatu, the non-profit organization working to keep Bali’s beaches clean. Come enjoy a special evening of music, sunset drinks and magic while helping to protect the world-class waves at Uluwatu. The show begins Saturday at 5:30 pm at the beautiful Uluwatu Surf Villas overlooking the Indian Ocean. 

Curren, a celebrated musician who has played to sold-out crowds around the world, will perform his unique blend of funk, jazz and blues tunes from his latest album, In Plain View, at an intimate sunset gathering on the cliffs above Uluwatu.

Adding to the evening’s excitement will be a pair of epic door prizes, with at least one classic Tom Curren Channel Islands Black Beauty model and another Surfboard from Tom’s quiver up for grabs. All ticket holders to the concert can enter into the raffle for a chance to win one of these celebrated works of art and surf history generously donated by Channel Islands Bali, ridden and signed by the man himself!  

Music has been an integral part of Curren’s life since he was 15. Since moving on from his career in competitive surfing on the world tour, Curren has had the opportunity to focus his efforts in recent years on his musical passion. His eclectic style ­– called a combination of "funk and psychedelia" by Rolling Stone ­– has been embraced not only by the surfing community, but by mainstream music lovers who recognize and appreciate his minimalist approach and raw talent.  He could, if he were the type (which he isn’t) justifiably lay claim to having invented the surf-soul/folksy-blues zeitgeist long before Jack Johnson came along.

Opening the night’s festivities will be a performance from the folk and roots music stylings of Australia’s Black Rabbit George.
