Music Spotlight: Trevor Green

Variety is the Spice of Life at Surf City Nights

Huntington Beach is home to a wide variety of residents and is a melting-pot of different people from different walks of life. This is fully represented in the weekly Surf City Nights Farmers' Market where visitors can find all sorts of food and entertainment from various nationalities and backgrounds. Trevor Green, performing tonight on Olive Street represents this diversity perfectly with his unique brand of world, funk, folk and jam rock.

Trevor Green grew up in sunny Southern California. As is the case with many SoCal youths, Green spent most of his days hitting the surf, soaking up the sun and playing his guitar. Music would ultimately be his calling, and Green has spent the better part of the past decade touring, building up his loyal and enthusiastic fan base everywhere from Boise, Idaho to right here in Huntington Beach.


Green's versatility lies not only in his song writing, but in the shear number of instruments he is able to play with skill. His use of vocals, guitar (6 and 12 string, lap slide, banjo, mandolin and ukulele), didgeridoo, stompbox and harmonica combine to bring a unique style that has been called "a musical breath of fresh air". Combine this with an energetic, entertaining live show and you can see that the Surf City Night's crowd is in for a treat tonight when Green takes the stage. Recently, Green has been tapped to record three songs for the upcoming major motion picture 'This Must Be the Place', which stars Sean Penn and features David Byrne of the Talking Heads.

If variety is the spice of life then Surf City Night's is the place to be. With all the great food, vendors and sunshine punctuated by music from a variety of artists you are guaranteed to find something you like on a Tuesday tonight. To witness something truly special, be sure not to miss Trevor Green's performance as he embodies all of the diversity that make the Street Fair, and Huntington Beach, such a great place.
