When Jim Thomas moved to the sandy beaches of California, he knew he had found his home. And when he began surfing, he
found a spiritual well to which he drew his music. It was here that he found the inspiration to form Mermen. The band was
formed in San Francisco in 1989, with a heavy 1960s surf and psychedelic rock sound. Thomas had been heavily influenced by
the surf movie The Endless Summer, and his love for the surf culture bled into his music. Somehow his love for surfing and
his music making intertwined into a unique sound that would someday bring Mermen their notoriety and loyal fan base. But while
their signature beach blanket sound has gotten them to where they are today, they have tried to diversify their music, dabbling
in many different genres and styles of music. The band is made up of guitarist and composer Jim Thomas, bassist Allen Whitman
and drummer Martyn Jones. Thomas met Whitman when they both worked for a company that sold public address and sound reinforcement
systems. Whitman heard Thomas' recordings and decided to join forces with the talented musician. An ad in the local paper
that stated simply "Surf Bongos" brought Martyn Jones into the picture, and soon a new band was created. Mermen have a fiercely
devoted following and have received critical acclaim with every new album release. In 2012, the band put out their first Christmas
album, A Very Mermen Christmas, that was very well-received. With their laid back, surfer mentality, and the skills of highly-trained
musicians, this band is as fun to watch as they are to listen to. You won't want to miss your chance to see this group in
