The Shitones are a surf-inspired band featuring Shigemi "Shig33" Komiyama on drums, Jennifer Burnes on bass, and Jim Thomas on guitar. The Shitones have been going strong for almost 10 years, performing weekly at the Beach Chalet for many years, and at the Sandbar prior to that. Though often playing local to the Bay Area, the band did make a trip to Japan in 2002.
Their repertoire consists of surf cover tunes by greats such as Dick Dale, Jack Nietsche, and The Ventures as well as older rock and roll--Jimi Hendrix, early Fleetwood Mac, Quicksilver Messenger Service. You can never tell what gems might surface at a Shitones show--or who might be sitting in--Dave Jess, Johnny Hamilton, Roger Rocha, Henry Kaiser, Freddie Roulette, Prairie Prince, Jerry Joseph, Brian Richie, Dave Schools and Bobby Vega. http://www.mermen.net/shitones.shtml
