Champion surfer Rob Machado is currently doing a spring run of US tour dates to showcase his film Melali: The Drifter Sessions. Rob Machado and his band, Melali Sessions Band, kicked off their tour last Tuesday, April 5th, at the Belly Up in Solana Beach, CA to hundreds of surf-stoked fans.
Produced by Machado and director Taylor Steele (AKA the godfather of modern surf film), the film Melali: The Drifter Sessions features the very skilled wave rider Machado, and also showcases some of the world’s best wave riders on the best waves Indonesia has to offer.
But, the concert is not merely the film. The film is also accompanied by Machado’s live performance of the score. Double the goodness!
