Surf Guitar & Ukulele!

El Borko On The Beach

Brook Adams writes and plays his own songs influenced by pop, rock and soul. He plays the first Friday of every month at Territorial Wines in Eugene. El Borko Duo is Brook on guitar and Jon Neher on dobro. They sing and play classic instrumentals with a 60s vibe which you might call "surf & western". When El Borko plays ukulele in the car, it's better if someone else drives.
