Hard Rock Hotel Daytona Beach presents the Legendary Dick Dale in concert Saturday, April 14, 2018
Dale, being a surfer himself, wanted his music to reflect the sounds he heard in his mind while surfing. He thus became one of the first electric guitarists to use rapid scales in his guitar playing. Dale is credited for introducing the use of reverb and his staccato picking technique became his trademark.
Dick Dale and The Del-Tones performed the songs "My First Love," "Runnin' Wild" and "Muscle Beach" in the 1964 film, Muscle Beach Party.
Dale and the Del-Tones performed both sides of his Capitol single, "Secret Surfin' Spot" / "Surfin' and Swingin'" in the popular 1963 movie, Beach Party, starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello. This helped bring Dale, surf music, and surf culture to national prominence. He also appeared in the 1987 film, Back to the Beach—in which Avalon's character, reluctant to attend a Dick Dale concert, remarks to Funicello, "We can come back here in the year 2000 and see Dick!"—a testimony to Dale's continued popularity and career longevity.
Dick's performances during 1961 at the Rendezvous Ballroom in Balboa are credited with the birth of the surf music phenomenon. In 2009, Dale was inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, Tennessee. Dale is also a 2011 inductee into the Surfing Walk of Fame in Huntington Beach, California, in the Surf Culture category.
